Project Information

The project supportsed the establishment of a sustainable and relevant Agricultural Market Information System ran by the Agriculture Marketing Office (AMO) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF).

The project aimed to improve farmers' knowledge on the use of market information and establish greater links between farmers and final buyers. At the same time, it supported the increased coordination between government departments also responsible for collecting and using agriculture market information. Finally, the project supported capacity development in both the use of the system and the information, while ensuring that the capacity is sustainable for the long-term and institutionalized within Cambodian government bodies.

The key outputs and outcomes of the projects included the improvement in the productivity and income of Cambodian farmers, and an increase in the capacity of Cambodian institutions and organisations to provide agriculture-marketing services to farmers. It had also helped the MAAF's Agriculture Marketing Office and provincial offices assume ownership and responsibility for the continuous management and operation of the Agriculture Marketing Information System.
