Context

  • 78% of the Cambodia’s population lives in rural areas and 42% of the active population depends on agriculture, forestry and fishing, which represent 30% of GDP in 2018
  • The agriculture sector in Cambodia is recognized as suffering from low productivity, vulnerability to flooding and drought, inadequate infrastructure, in particular irrigation and in some places, declining soil fertility
  • The Cambodian government has prioritized agriculture as a key sector for development. It aims to push agricultural beyond strengthening rural incomes, into improved technology, research and development, crop diversification and promotion of commercial production and agroindustry
  • Today, in developing countries, 2.7 billion people live with less than 2.5$ per day
  • Global agriculture must double in the next 30 years to sustain this type of population growth. We need farmers to continue to focus on smarter, better, more efficient growing practices in order to meeting demand
