Report of the Monitoring Socio-economic Survey in Commune Teuk Thla, Sihanoukville
Prior to formulation of the project on “Integrated Coastal Resources Management in Sihanoukville (ICRM-SV)”, a base-line socio-economic survey was conducted in March 2005 in Commune Teuk Thla, Sihanoukville, Cambodia by SEAFDEC/TD staff in cooperation with a team from the Fisheries Office of Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville of FiA Cambodia. Based on the findings of the said survey, the project plan was finalized and the project eventually commenced in November 2005. After more than four years of continued support of the Japanese Trust Fund, the involvement of SEAFDEC in the ICRM-SV project would be terminated towards the end of 2009. A final project evaluation is therefore deemed necessary in order to assess the marine biological impacts of the project on the coastal fishery resources as well as its socio-economic impacts on the fishing communities which could provide inputs for the necessary steps to be undertaken by FiA Cambodia when it takes over the implementation of the project after 2009. In order to attain such objectives, a monitoring socio-economic survey was conducted on 9-12 February 2009 prior to the project evaluation which took place in August 2009. The results of the survey was analyzed and compiled in this report which includes the findings derived from the analytical data of the survey, comparing the current socio-economic status of the fishing communities with those prior to the commencement of the project.
