Description and results


This project supports a World Food Program (WFP) initiative, which primarily aims to reduce the dependence of poor rural women and men on food assistance in the areas of Cambodia most affected by the global food crisis or vulnerable to potential ecological disasters. The program helps them to improve physical and economic access to safer and more nutritious food.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of the end of the project include: vulnerable populations received 8,243 metric tons of locally purchased rice. In addition, seeds were provided to schools for the production of vegetables used in school breakfasts. The project also contributed to the rehabilitation or construction of 73 fish ponds, 146 km of feeder roads, and irrigation schemes such as canals and embankments, serving more than 5,900 hectares of farmland. These activities have contributed to improving access to safe and nutritious food for close to 680,000 of Cambodia’s rural poor. Technical assistance was provided for the development of the National Social Protection Strategy and the National Nutrition Program, thus contributing to the development of Cambodia's national capacity for long-term food self-reliance. The project also helped to build the capacity of the government and NGOs in food security monitoring systems. These capacity-building activities are contributing to reducing Cambodia’s reliance on food assistance.
