$39.1 million for the Emergency Food Assitance Project (EFAP) and the Climate Resilient Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program (Rice-SDP) for agricultural productivity growth and diversity in selected highly food insecure and economically depressed areas.

 

GAFSP funding for Cambodia will support the Royal Government of Cambodia’s Strategy for Agriculture and Water (SAW), the overall framework for agricultural and water resource management. The SAW is designed to improve food security and economic growth by enhancing agricultural productivity and diversification and by improving water resource development and management. Indirectly, it will create opportunities for further diversification and intensification of production within various farming systems.

 

 

The GAFSP Private Sector Window is also funding Acleda MFI, a bank that provides financing solutions to agricultural enterprises and SMES, in Cambodia.

This interactive map of Cambodia highlights the GAFSP project areas along with sub-national poverty, malnutrition, and population density data. GAFSP funding will support the scaling-up of the ongoing Emergency Food Assistance Project (EFAP) and the newly proposed Climate Resilience Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program (CRRC-SDP). 

The EFAP has selected 10 priority provinces: Kampong Speu, Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, Takeo, Banteay Menachey, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, Preah Vihear, Siem Reap and Oddar Menachey. The 10 provinces are characterized by poor smallholder farm households, high levels of food insecurity and high vulnerability to droughts and floods. The target areas of the CRRC-SDP, being co-funded through GAFSP, are still being determined as this program is still under development.
