SCW signs MoU with MoE

On 17 January 2018, SCW officially signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Environment (MoE).

14 representatives of the MoE and SCW attended the event. The ceremony was presided over by H.E. Mr. CHEA Samang, the General Director of the General Department of Administration for Nature Conservation and Protection (GDANCP) of the MoE, and Mr. TEP Boonny, SCW Executive Director.

Mr. CHEA Samang emphasized the importance of this partnership to sustain the gift of natural resources, we received from our ancestors, for future generations; especially in the light of increasing development pressure.

SCW is the one of very few local environmental NGOs to have obtained this vital agreement, usually observed with iNGOs.

SCW is proud to have achieved this important step in the joint effort for environmental protec-tion & biodiversity conservation.
