Project Information

This project's objective was to strengthen the implementation of sustainable integrated agriculture development and mine action in support of poverty alleviation. The project aimed to reduce poverty among poor and vulnerable men and women farmers in up to six mine-affected districts in northwest Cambodia by increasing food security and income. The project was expected to contribute to good governance by strengthening the decentralized administrative structures delivering agriculture extensions (including micro-finance) and mine action services.

The project aimed to strengthen responsive and integrated agriculture extensions and micro-finance services that will increase production and income for vulnerable farmer, address gender inequalities, and improve the quality of life. It also sought to improve community-based, participatory and gender responsive land use planning and mine risk reduction programs that can reduce accidents, release land and contribute to agriculture development.

Complementary Information

A key feature of the project was the mainstreaming of the goal of gender equality and implementation processes.
