Project Objectives

By building demand-oriented and cooperatively organized agricultural advisory structures, the project contributes to income growth and food security in rural areas of Cambodia, and to the further development of the Cambodian cooperative sector.

Summary

The strategy of DGRV in Cambodia focuses on strengthening cooperative collaboration in agriculture with the aim to provide important growth impulses to the rural population as a whole and to farmers and small business holders in particular. The Special Initiative "ONE WORLD WITHOUT HUNGER" enables DGRV and its partners to expand their cooperation portfolio by adding another important component. The setup of cooperatively organized advisory structures support not only the development of the Cambodian cooperative sector. With its demand-driven, technically and economically oriented advisory approach, the project also contributes to improvements in food security and livelihoods in rural areas of Cambodia. Against this background, the project enables cooperatives in the province of Kampong Chhnang to offer their members agricultural extension services towards a sustainable increase in production and income generation. The main activities comprise of agricultural training and consultancy activities, supplemented by material assistance in setting up demonstration plots- / stables. Value chain and market analysis serve the development of co-operative business activities.

The project is financed by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
