Community-Based Rural Development Project in Kampong Thom and Kampot

Community-Based Rural Development Project in Kampong Thom and Kampot

The provinces of Kanpong Thom and Kampot are among the country’s most vulnerable to food insecurity. Poor rural people do not have sufficient land and/or draught animals and labour for farming, and they lack access to improved technology and capital for investments in technology. Their access to government support services, safe drinking water and other social services is inadequate.

The project's goal is to help poor rural people, particularly women, overcome poverty by:

  • improving poor people’s capabilities to use natural resources effectively and access services
  • promoting transfer of simple agricultural technologies through farmer-based extension to increase productivity and income
  • rehabilitating irrigation schemes
  • providing access to safe drinking water and improving infrastructure, particularly roads
  • providing institutional support to service providers

Poor people who benefit from project activities participate in community development, local planning, field demonstrations, seed-multiplication programmes, farmer training, construction of rural infrastructure works, and water users’ groups. They contribute cash and labour to the construction of irrigation and water supply facilities and take on full responsibility for operating and maintaining them.
