Help Cambodian Communities End Hunger and Poverty



Our Community Agriculture Development Project helps mitigate hunger and poverty in rural Cambodia by providing sustainable livelihood opportunities to former poachers and slash and burn farmers.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In the Cardamom Mountains, many landless Cambodians struggle to survive by poaching wildlife, illegally cutting down trees and scraping to provide food, shelter, education and health care for themselves and their children. In 1990, 73 percent of Cambodia's land area was covered by forest. By 2007, that number had dropped to 57 percent. People in the Cardamoms depended heavily on the destruction of the forests to prepare fertile farmland and provide food security for their family.

How will this project solve this problem?

Today, with Wildlife Alliance's help, villagers have settled in Sovanna Baitong, a village that has been equipped to support modern agricultural techniques and community-based organizations. They have received land tenure, become part of a community-wide irrigation project, and have been trained in sustainable farming techniques.

Potential Long Term Impact

The village is now thriving with a new local school, a community fund, a health clinic, and a growing small-business sector. We are working with the community to assess needs and respond with solutions that empower families and protect the forest.
