Agricultural Services Programme for Innovation, Resilience and Extension
ASPIRE will expand into the five target provinces covered by the ongoing Project for Agricultural Development and Economic Empowerment when it ends in 2018, plus five additional provinces that will be identified by the midterm review.
The programme's objective is that by 2021 an improved model of extension services for Cambodia will be helping smallholder farmers to contribute to broad-based economic growth. It will achieve this objective through profitable and resilient farm businesses.
ASPIRE will have four components: evidence-based policy development; capacity development for extension services; improved extension services; and infrastructure to support climate-resilient agriculture. It will target productive poor people and vulnerable smallholder farmers.
