Agricultural Program

The Cambodian population has gone through poverty for more than four decades.

They have been governed by five different regimes, characterized by war, killing, repression, violence, fear, mistrust, prostitution, and many other hardships. Many Cambodians are living at a mere subsistence level, depending on small-scale seasonal activities such as rice farming. The population is growing fast and job creation is not keeping pace. People face food insecurity, low income, poor health and the temptation to drop out of school to try and make money for their living. Many constraints contribute to low productivity, such as high risks in crop production and a lack of well-paid jobs. Agricultural land holdings are limited in size, with 48 percent of those owning land having less than 0.50 hectare of crop land per household.

As indicated by EPS’s feasibility study, the core development of agricultural training is very important for giving people meaningful work, particularly for men. This can increase food security, lead to health improvements, raise incomes, and allow families to live together whilst sending their children to school.
