Oxfam Novib has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to establish community-managed Fish Conservation Zones in 90 communities of Laos. The zones give fish the chance to reproduce and recover from overfishing, thereby improving villagers’ food security, nutritional status and opportunities for generating income. The project is part of the WWF’s Greater Mekong Programme, which aims to conserve the river’s biodiversity. It has succeeded in winning the support of provincial and district governments by working closely with them, and building trust among government, communities and civil society organizations (CSOs).
