Management training for the Anlung Pring ecotourism team

Support the Anlung Pring Ecotourism team in building its management skills in order to better manage the operations, improve the team’s efficiency.

Objectifs

WWT Cambodia has three areas of focus:

1) reserve management support of two key protected wetlands in Cambodia; Boeung Prek Lapouv & Anlung Pring Protected Landscape;

2) wetland education and awareness raising on a local and national scale;

3) supporting the “wetland wise use” concept by helping the local communities to diversify their livelihoods from the wetlands.

Anlung Pring Community Based Ecotourism (AP-CBET) site is one of these wise use interventions. WWT is working on an exciting project with 55 local community members living around Anlung Pring Protected Landscape who formed a tourism group, to protect their beautiful wetland by operating a local tourism service (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1KVrdTPWyE).

It helps them improve their livelihoods while providing financial support to the conservation activities in Anlung Pring.
Up until now, the community succeeded to attract hundreds of tourists who were interested in seeing Sarus Cranes, experiencing rural lifestyle, and enjoying a peaceful time in nature. Recently WWT helped them to revise their business model to help increase revenue from their service. This upscaling requires an enthusiastic international volunteer who is willing to dedicate their time and expertise to help the community.

This opportunity is most suitable for those who are looking for some hands-on rural experience, or for those professionals who are thinking of temporarily contributing to rural-conservation work in a developing country.

Notre partenaire local

WWT (Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust)

Historique

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is one of the world's leading conservation organisations dedicated to saving wetlands. Their mission is to conserve, restore and create wetlands for the wildlife and people that rely on them. They have over 70 years’ experience of doing so around the globe, through combining policy, practice and scientific research.
WWT was recently endorsed as one of only six International Organisation Partners by the 170 countries that are signatories to the Ramsar Convention, demonstrating the expertise needed for integrated wetland conservation and development projects.

WWT has led integrated community-based conservation projects in Cambodia since 2010, in partnership with governmental and non-governmental stakeholders. They have a local team based in Cambodia, with technical support and oversight provided by a team in the UK.

WWT’s involvement in the wetland conservation in Cambodia covers an spectrum of approaches such as advocating the “wetland wise use” concept, conducting research, alternative livelihood schemes, improved environmental friendly farming practices, climate change adaptation, law enforcement, conservation planning, and communication, education and public awareness

Their activities provide direct and indirect benefits to over 6,800 wetland community members in Cambodia.
They support these communities including (but not limited to) rice farmers, fishermen, ecotourism sector, schoolchildren, handicraft producers, etc. to improve their livelihoods through implementing the “wetland wise use” concept.

Accueil et transfert

A member of WWT’s staff will welcome the Planète Urgence volunteer at the airport and accompany him/her to his accommodation in Phnom Penh in taxi (approx 20 minutes), the volunteer will then be driven to the AP Community the next day (approx. 5 hours) by car or minivan.

Aéroport d'arrivée

Phnom Penh

Hébergement

The volunteer will be staying in a local homestay in the village. Private rooms with comfortable beds, mosquito nets and fans. The bathroom will be shared with the family. In Cambodian rural households a simple bucket bath is common.
Being a rural community, Anlung Pring is generally considered safe. However the volunteers will receive a precautionary induction from WWT about protecting themselves (e.g. from dogs if outside during the night).

Le financement d’une mission

Pourquoi payer pour partir en mission ?

Planète Urgence a fait le choix de s’associer à de petites structures, qui n’ont pas les moyens de rémunérer leurs volontaires mais qui ont un réel besoin d’appui et prend donc le parti de soutenir des associations aux moyens très limités.  En savoir plus.

 

Outre l’organisation logistique, le don mission permet la mise en place d’un réel processus de montage de projet avec le partenaire local. Notre équipe s’assure ainsi du réel impact des missions pour les communautés. Découvrez ce que comprend les frais d’une mission.

 

Par ailleurs, il n’existe pas de financements publics ou institutionnels pour encourager le développement du volontariat international de courte durée sur le thème de la formation professionnelle ou du partage de compétences. C’est pourquoi Planète Urgence demande aux entreprises dans le cadre du Congé Solidaire® et aux volontaires pour les Missions Solidaires de participer aux frais de la mission.

 

Notre Principe de solidarité

Le don mission ne correspond pas au montant réel du coût de la mission choisie par le volontaire mais a été calculé sur la base du coût moyen de nos missions. Nous avons fait ce choix pour ne pas favoriser certaines missions moins coûteuses que d’autres et permettre ainsi à tous nos partenaires de recevoir de manière équitable des volontaires intéressés par leurs actions.

 

Sur le même principe, le financement des offres de volontariat repose lui aussi sur ce concept solidaire : pour une même mission de 2 semaines, le don mission du Congé Solidaire® est plus élevé que celui d’une Mission Solidaire. Le coût des missions résulte en effet d’un équilibre entre ces deux sources de financement permettant ainsi aux personnes ne bénéficiant pas du soutien de leur employeur de partir en mission.

 

Le don ne comprend pas :
– le billet d’avion (dans le cadre d’un Congé Solidaire®, certains employeurs peuvent assumer également le coût)
– les vaccins éventuels,
– le visa éventuel

Tout comme le don mission, ces frais peuvent donner lieu à une défiscalisation.

Les dons de missions, défiscalisable à 66%

Tous les dons de missions ouvrent droit 66% de défiscalisation. Les dons sont déduits du montant de l’impôt sur le revenu à hauteur de 66% pour les particuliers. Ainsi, par exemple, un don de 1 850 € après défiscalisation, reviendra à 629 € pour un particulier. . Les frais entourant la mission sont aussi éligibles à la défiscalisation. En savoir plus

Planète Urgence accompagne les volontaires dans la recherche de financement

Tous les dons effectués par son réseau seront déduits du don global sur les sites partenaires de Planète Urgence. Les donateurs bénéficieront d’une déduction fiscale de 66% du montant de leur don en faveur de la mission.
