Cambodia HARVEST

Cambodia HARVEST is a key part of Feed the Future, working to foster equitable growth in the agricultural sector; improve nutritional status, especially of women and children; and reduce rural poverty in selected regions.

Cambodia HARVEST

Cambodia HARVEST is a five-year integrated food security and climate change program supported by the American people through the United States Feed the Future and Global Climate Change initiatives. The program seeks to reduce poverty and malnutrition by diversifying and increasing food production and income for up to 85,000 rural Cambodian households. Cambodia HARVEST develops sound, agricultural-focused solutions to poor productivity, postharvest losses, malnutrition, lack of market access, environmental degradation, and the effects of climate change on vulnerable rural populations.

The overarching goals of Cambodia HARVEST are to improve food security; strengthen natural resource management and resilience to climate change; and increase the capacity of the public and private sectors and civil society to support agricultural competitiveness. Specific objectives include:

  • Increase incomes for 100,000 rural households;
  • Accrue economic benefits for 283,500 people;
  • Develop income-generating activities for 8,500 "extreme poor" households;
  • Diversify cropping systems for 56,000 households; and
  • Generate $40 million in incremental new agricultural sales.
