The aim of the project was to make Cambodia’s agricultural sector less vulnerable to changes in the availability of water resources resulting from climate change. It was also expected to contribute to the broader goal of enhancing adaptive capacity to prevent food insecurity in Cambodia induced by climate change. The project worked to increase awareness of climate change, demonstrate climate resilient practices in agriculture and water resource management and integrate responses into provincial, district and commune development plans. The project was the first designed to respond to the priorities identified in Cambodia’s National Adaptation Programme of Action to Climate Change (NAPA).
The project 's gender target aimed to bridge the gap between gender, agriculture and climate change at province, district and commune levels.
