Cambodia’s regular exposure to natural disasters severely hinders agricultural production. Rice especially remains low compared to other South East Asian countries, with floods and droughts causing almost every year significant losses. This threatens food security, reduces livelihood security, and worsens the nutrition of thousands of smallholder families. Under heavy stress, the food system is expected to be further impacted by the effects of climate change. Policy and planning challenges therefore need to be addressed. FAO will work at the national, provincial and local level to support the creation of proactive Disaster Risk Reduction mechanisms in the country.

The goal of this project is to assist the key government agencies working on reducing rural poverty by improving their ability to analyse the implications of various policy instruments and to identify pro-poor policy measures.
