IMPROVING AGRICULTURAL DIVERSIFICATION & FOOD ACCESS

For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, Action Against Hunger has led the global fight against hunger, saving the lives of children and their families. This new partnership with BGR aims at improving agricultural diversification and food access in the Preah Vihear province in Cambodia. Action Against Hunger has designed the Community-Oriented Multisector Mechanism on Nutrition (COMMON) Project to offer sustainable solutions to the major causes of undernutrition in the region. The project’s components including nutrition, water and sanitation, food security, gender equity, capacity building, advocacy, and dissemination. The grant from BGR will fund agricultural diversification activities within the food security component. The project will train 44 model farmers (most of them women) in 22 villages in agroecology for home gardening and climate-resilient rice production. Each model farmer will have a demonstration plot, at which she will train other farmers in these techniques. Provincial agricultural experts will provide monthly technical assistance. The 44 model farmers will train an additional 616 household farmers. This project will serve as a foundation for future larger-scale dissemination and implementation across other provinces. New partner, new project
