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.

Helmet Handover Ceremony
December 9, 2014

According to the WHO status report on road safety, road traffic accidents result in more than 1 million deaths globally each year. For every 1 person who dies in a road traffic crash, 20 are injured. And 1 in 20 of those injured is left with a disability.  At such a scale, this is an issue that impacts each of us. We envision a world where we and our loved ones face fewer risks as we go about our everyday lives.

But the numbers don’t really describe the huge impact that accidents have.  A traffic death may cost a family its wage earner.  Traffic injuries may mean a child won’t be able to attend school.  In short – the accidents have the potential to cost Cambodia’s government and its society heavily. What makes events like today all the more exciting, however, is that we come together not just to discuss the problem, but to celebrate a solution: the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation’s “Head Safe, Helmet On” campaign.

Private Sector Forum on the Draft Environmental Impact Assessment Law
December 5, 2014

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen:

Good morning.  It is my great pleasure to join you here this morning at the Private Sector Forum on the Draft Environmental Impact Assessment Law.

Today’s forum is important, because it addresses a challenge that Cambodia, as well as many countries around the world, are facing:  How do we pursue economic development without sacrificing the health of our environment? 

School Dropout Prevention Pilot Program Dissemination Workshop
December 4, 2014

The U.S. Agency for International Development, which I represent, is an important supporter of education around the world. Education is a pathway to better opportunities for every person, their community, and their nation. Through the School Dropout Prevention Program (SDPP), USAID is working closely with the Ministry of Education to achieve Cambodia’s Millennium Development Goal: Universal Access to Basic Education by 2015. The SDPP program supports the Ministry’s policy on Preventing Student from Dropout of School and Information Communication Technology in education, which calls for access to ICT for all teachers and students, especially at the secondary level.

National Family Planning Conference
November 27, 2014

Globally, nearly 300,000 women and over 3 million infants die each year from complications in pregnancy and birth – with unplanned pregnancies often carrying the highest risk.  Here in Cambodia, as evidenced by our last Demographic and Health Survey, 206 Cambodian women needlessly lose their lives for every 100,000 live births -- usually from preventable and treatable causes.
