[en] This paper suggests that new decentralized and de-concentration reforms, which set out a framework to bring important governance functions to the sub-national level, have opened new spaces to explore complementary
approaches for environmental governance. Using the Battambang spatial planning framework as a basis, the paper reviews some of the limitation of CBNRM implementation of the last ten years and then focuses on detailing
the methodology used to develop and build the framework and how it can be beneficial to current CBNRM. The argument continually defended is that the integration of CBNRM initiatives into a comprehensive spatial planning
framework at the provincial level can reinforce local actions and give communities stronger recognition. In a discussion of the three dimensions of the spatial planning framework which include land use planning,
territorial policy, and territorial governance, the analysis does not negate the important contribution of local support to rural communities but tries to identify complementary (and not substitutive) approaches that might
strengthen communities in their daily livelihood issues.
