In 2013, CIRUM supported Ka Bay village to request that the local authorities allocate two forest areas near the village for water source management and protection. As a result, the Sa Thay District People’s Committee (DPC) granted Ka Bay a Land use rights Certificate for 30.8 ha of the watershed forest. Following Ka Bay village, in 2014, the three other villages of Dak Yo, Dak Wot and Ko Tu also filed applications to the local authorities for allocation of land and forest in order to maintain the village’s water source.
