Summary

Help 375 rural women and their families in northern Cambodia improve their income generation through job creation and sustainable livelihood activities. This will impact the communities economics and environment and aid in breaking the local cycle of poverty.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The 375 women and their families living in north-east Cambodia are remote and rural, and the majority of poverty stems from the lack of access to basic infrastructure, lack of capital to extend their agricultural products, and diminishing natural resources upon which their livelihoods depend. The estimated income of households in these villages is less than $1.25 per day, with most people earning an income from subsistence rice-growing or fishing.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will build the capacity of natural resource dependent communities located adjacent to these biodiversity-rich sections of the Mekong. CRDT will coordinate sustainable development activities such as trainings on livelihood activities and savings, helping develop a fish sauce business as well as strengthening the capacities of bio-digesters users to the benefit of the species and habitats in these critically important biodiversity areas.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will impact skills which will allow 375 women to improve the communities' economics, the environment and they will have a voice in local government to communicate their needs and concerns. CRDT is combining this project with sanitation, renewable energy, water supply, small-scale business, environmental education and reforestation. It will ensure that the benefits of this integrated organic system will be self sustaining and aid in breaking the local cycle of poverty.
