    The first technical report on safeguards has been developed by the Cambodia REDD+ Taskforce Secretariat. This report covers (1) an analysis of key principles of the global safeguards, (2) an analysis of gaps between these global measures and existing Policies, Laws and Regulations (PLRs) in Cambodia, and (3) an analysis of lessons learned from the application of safeguards in pilot projects in Oddar Meanchey and Seima. Hence, the next important steps for developing a national safeguard approach are to raise awareness among stakeholders about safeguards; to inform stakeholders about the kinds of safeguards proposed at the global level; to receive their comments on the kinds and level of safeguard measures that can be applicable for the context of Cambodia; and to discuss possible options for establishing a national safeguard approach.
