Project Information

Agriculture is an important sector in Cambodia. Agricultural production contributes to approximately 35% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and approximately 75% of the national population makes their living from agriculture. Despite the abundant farmland, agricultural production is still low due to a number of factors and one major factor is extension service delivery.

To increase productivity and diversification of agriculture, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) submitted a proposal to the Government of Japan for a Technical Cooperation Project, namely “Battambang Rural Area Nurture and Development (BRAND) Project” (the Project). This was submitted through the request survey mechanism for Japan’s Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) for Japanese Fiscal Year 2006. The objective of the project was to improve agricultural production through improved agricultural extension service delivery.
