ADB Helps Boost Incomes of Poor Cambodia Communities


will grant $3.45 million in technical assistance to diversify and increase the incomes of marginalized farmers, small landholders and impoverished families living in and around Cambodia's Tonle Sap Basin. The project, which will run from September 2009 to August 2012, will back training programs and demonstrations of modern agricultural practices in Banteay Meanchey, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom and Siem Reap. It will also provide access to Internet-based agricultural knowledge banks. The country's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will implement the project.
