Climate-Friendly Agribusiness Value Chains Sector Project Approved February 2018 Est. implementation period 6.0 years
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the climate vulnerability of Cambodia's agricultural value chains.

Observed climate change trends in Cambodia, where the livelihoods of 80 percent of the population relies on rain-fed agriculture, indicate serious impacts on agriculture, which is highly sensitive to climate variability. Also, Cambodia's agricultural value chains remain fragmented as a result of infrastructure gaps and a range of capacity and policy constraints. 

This initiative targets four agricultural value chains in Kampong Cham, Tbong Khmum, Kampot and Takeo provinces. It will enhance the resilience and productivity of crops, and increase agricultural competitiveness and household incomes in the targeted provinces. It will address each stage of the agricultural value chain.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 6 years.
