Course Transcript Gender 101: Gender Equality at USAID

Remarks by Ms. Veena Reddy, Mission Director, USAID/Cambodia, Launch of Legal Network
August 9, 2019

Cambodia’s economic security depends upon the sustainable management of natural resources and preserving a heathy environment. This is vital to the country’s continued economic growth. For the past three years, USAID and UNDP supported legal reforms to protect Cambodia’s environment, including amendments to the Protected Area law and the Forestry law. We also helped with the draft of the Environmental and Natural Resource Management Code of Cambodia. These amendments to the laws and the future enactment of the Environment Code establish a solid legal framework for the protection of natural resources.

With USAID support, IRRI has produced and disseminated high-yielding stress-tolerant rice varieties in collaboration with national governments in Asia and Africa.  This helps farmers be more resilient to climatic shocks.  USAID support has accelerated the dissemination of these varieties in Cambodia with a re-focus on strengthening the national seed system. This is achieved by nurturing the growth of private seed producers, facilitating a greater integration of the private sector in the rice seed value chain, and fostering a policy environment that enables coordination within the value chain. A strong and functional rice seed system will ensure an accelerated dissemination of these rice varieties across the country.

As we all know, Cambodia has suffered through many painful years of civil war, including – but not limited to – the almost unimaginable atrocities committed under the Khmer Rouge regime. During those years, some of the darkest known to humanity, more than 1.7 million Cambodians died from starvation, forced labor, torture, and execution.    Why do these atrocities matter to us here and now in 2019?  It is because there is no better teacher than the past. The effects of the Khmer Rouge regime still linger for many Cambodians who lived through that terrible period. Remembering and understanding the history of such crimes is critical not only to comprehending where we are today, but also to helping us build a better future as a nation and a society.

It is my great pleasure to join this celebration of the One Health Workforce project. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Korea International Cooperation Agency, KOICA, for funding this activity.

The achievements we will review today could not be realized without the technical support of the Southeast Asia One Health University Network, the collaboration of participating Cambodian universities, key government institutions, and one Health partners.
