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.

Remarks by USAID Cambodia Mission Director Rebecca Black at US-ASEAN Business Alliance Workshop
January 30, 2015

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises are the backbone of almost all economies in the world. Their essential contribution to sustained and broad-based development has become even more indispensable in the regional and global economy of today. This is particularly the case in ASEAN, with each member nation having between 52 and 97 percent of its domestic employment within the SME sector. Here in Cambodia, a recent report from the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia puts SME employment at 73 percent of the domestic work force.

More than 125 small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) entrepreneurs attended a one-day workshop in Phnom Penh today to enhance their knowledge and skills on good business practices presented by U.S. multi-national companies.

Sponsored by the US-ASEAN Business Alliance for Competitive SMEs, a partnership between the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US-ASEAN Business Council (US-ABC), the workshop included training in good business, financial and legal practices, and solutions including e-commerce and logistic tools to help improve the competitiveness of the participating firms.

NGO Education Partnership for Promoting Accountability in Education
December 16, 2014

On behalf of the American people, thank you for allowing me to make brief remarks. A fundamental principle in democracy is that citizens have the right to demand accountability and that the government at all levels from the commune council to the national level including the Ministry of Education have an obligation to be accountable. Each and every appointed and elected official and civil servants are accountable for their conduct and performance.

Cambodia’s National Day against Trafficking
December 12, 2014

I am honored to be here this afternoon in recognition of Cambodia’s National Day against Trafficking.  I would like to recognize the Provincial Committee to Combat Human Trafficking who have worked closely with our partner – Winrock International – to make this event a reality.  Too many Cambodians continue to be pushed into situations where they are easily exploited or trafficked.   We need to recommit our collective energy to ensure those situations are a thing of the past.
