Save the Earth Cambodia

Save the Earth Cambodia (STEC) is a non-government, non-profit, neutral, non-racial, non-religious, and non-political organization. STEC does not provide equipment and financial means and human resources to support any political party or its candidates.
Save the Earth promotes environmental & energy facilities, builds local capacity at community and institutional levels and creates awareness in the community and in the local authorities in regard to climate change and gender issues.
Issues concerning Climate Change are addressed by mitigation and adaptation activities that can have an impact on the environment. These activities are carried out through empowerment programs involving community and community based institutions to identify the options in regard to mitigation and adaptation, and the identified options are mainstreamed into commune development plans.

The first experience with GEF project – July 2007 to September 2009

As a result, the MIF become the ‘power-house’ of transferring the capacity o f the community people. Under MIF, there were 60 highly vulnerable women, old people, divorced, disabled, widow, women headed households leader etc. The number of beneficiaries increased to 78 when the project phased out in Sept 2009. The number jumped to 87 as per the external evaluation report conducted by GEF SGP. Again the number become 96 in September 2010 when the NAPA team visited as lessons learn project (successful CCA and livelihood project). The profoundness proved again this year in February when NSC member headed to our project site to appraise our proposal to replicate the successful case to its neighboring villages.
The capital of the MIF increased to nearly USD 6000 (six thousand) when it started with USD 3000 in 2008. The good news is the refunding is 100% since 2008.
