In line with the aspirations of the Royal Government of Cambodia, ISA will work to make the Cambodian agriculture sector move towards sustainable intensification. The project will support existing public and private institutions to provide appropriate sustainable technologies and techniques to smallholder farmers.
The vision of change for the target group: farmers will be able to increase income and improve livelihood by increasing agriculture productivity due to better soil in their land. For university students, the employability will increase as they get practical training and experience along with their education through an internship process.
The vision of change at the service level: farmers will be able to gain and improve access to appropriate technologies and extension services on sustainable intensification. Private companies will be able to sell technologies (including inputs) that promote sustainable intensification to service providers and farmers. Stakeholders and policy makers will have better coordination, resulting in making sustainable agriculture technologies and practices widely advocated and promoted. Universities will be able to offer internship programs to their students. ISA foresees four key functions that it will strengthen the system around sustainable intensification, as below:
Access Outreach: To reach 9,050 smallholder farmers with 2,715 female (30%), and 62 students with 20 female (30%)
Benefit Outreach: To increase the income of 2,987 smallholder farmers with 896 female (30%) and 32 students with 10 female (30%)
