USAID/Cambodia intends to conduct an evaluation of the USAID Keo Seima Conservation Project (KSCP) and the USAID Wildlife Sanctuary Support Program (WSSP). The two current USAID activities (WSSP and KCSP) are scheduled to end in March and August 2021, respectively. This evaluation will assist the Mission in reaching decisions related to: (1) the effectiveness of the current approaches to improving natural resource management; (2) the methodology to inform the Mission in any future activity; and (3) the nature and scope of possible future interventions based on lessons learned from the current project, and an assessment of missing opportunities that could address the social, economical and environmental issues more effectively.
