Our work in Cambodia is part of the programme Economic Empowerment & Social Inclusion for Farmers and Agriculture Producers, especially Women and Ethnic minorities in Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam, which was launched in 2018 and will be implemented to 2022.

With an emphasis on ethnic minorities, gender equality, and climate change, the programme aims to strengthen the capacities of cooperatives, women groups and other community based organisations.  The right to land, financial resources  and power for small-holder farmers , especially women, plays a central part of the programme.

In Cambodia the programme is implemented in rural areas in three provinces. The projects are executed by three local NGOs in the participating provinces.
