PHNOM PENH, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) — The William J. Clinton Foundation will help reforestation and avoided deforestation program in Cambodia, National Television TVK channel reported Saturday.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen supported that program and he recommended the Clinton Foundation to cooperation with Cambodia’s forestry administration on that program, Ira Magaziner, representative of Clinton Foundation in charge of climate change, was quoted by TVK as saying.

The Clinton Foundation will help to preserve the forestry in Cambodia, Ira said.

Hun Sen said that Cambodia has six baby forestry breeding stations and each place has about five million baby trees.

The Clinton Foundation will implement the program in 2009, Country Director Zach Katz said, without elaborating the amount of the fund.

The Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) is developing a regional forestry program covering Indonesia, Cambodia and Papua New Guinea.
