USAID Cambodia input for McGovern Dole applications

USAID Cambodia aims to share relevant information to facilitate efforts to align United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) McGovern Dole efforts in Cambodia with ongoing and planned USAID Cambodia activities.

USAID Cambodia works in several areas that are relevant to the McGovern Dole program, specifically in the areas of Feed the Future (FTF), the Global Health Initiative (GHI), nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and basic education. An overview of our work in these sectors can be found here: https://www.usaid.gov/cambodia/our-work

USAID Cambodia’s FTF efforts are concentrated in Pursat, Battambang, Kampong Thom and Siem Reap provinces. Current efforts focus on three value chains including rice, fish and vegetables. The 2016-2020 activities are currently under design, but are expected to focus in the same geographic area and on the same value chains.

Dropout Prevention Pilot Program Findings and Policy Dialogue Workshop
July 1, 2015

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you today to this workshop. Giving every Cambodian child the opportunity to complete their education and reduce the number who dropout is a priority for the country. Education is a pathway to better opportunities for every person, their community, and their nation. That is why USAID is an important supporter of education programs around the world.

It is my great pleasure to see all of you here today for the “Launch of the Prey Lang Landscape Biodiversity Assessment Report.” Protecting Cambodia’s natural resources is a priority for the U.S. government and we are proud to have supported this important initiative.

USAID works closely with the Cambodian government to preserve and sustainably manage its forests and rich biodiversity. Our Supporting Forests and Biodiversity Project, which funds this Biodiversity Assessment, is one of the main ways that we do this.

Cambodia, a country of just over 15 million people in Southeast Asia, has spent the last 20 years rebuilding from decades of civil war. The country has made great progress, enjoying steady economic growth rates over the recent decade and significant improvements in quality of life. Having once had the region’s highest HIV rate, Cambodia cut its prevalence rate in half from 1998 to 2010 and has made incredible advances in its fight against tuberculosis and infant deaths.
