Agroecological intensification and Diversification of family farming – Siem Reap

agroecologie-developpement-touristique-cambodgeAvec la proximité des temples d’Angkor, la croissance touristique de la ville de Siem Reap s’accompagne d’une forte demande en produits frais. Cette demande est satisfaite en grande partie par les importations venant des pays voisins, excluant les petits agriculteurs locaux qui subissent des contraintes multiples.

Les actions visent les petites exploitations familiales et portent sur l’intensification agroécologique et sur l’amélioration de la commercialisation. Ces petites exploitations acquièrent l’autosuffisance alimentaire, obtiennent des revenus réguliers et contribuent à approvisionner les marchés locaux. Le volet commercialisation est particulièrement actif, tiré par une demande croissante pour les produits sains et locaux.

L’organisation en groupement de commercialisation permet aux petits producteurs de se saisir collectivement des opportunités économiques qui leur étaient jusqu’à présent inaccessibles.

Promotion of sustainable peri-urban agriculture in 5 pilot towns — Abidjan

Historically, Abidjan’s urban and periurban agriculture has always been dynamic. However, it is facing some challenges. The low soil fertility, the depletion and pollution of water resources and the rise of parasites pressure are jeopardizing farming activities that could create income for thousands of families.

This pilot project’s goal is to reinforce the agroecological skills of 25 farming technicians from 15 Ivory professional organizations and NGOs. It supports the creation of a network uniting 90 pilot market gardeners.

They will be able to spread practices and systems to 500 other farmers in Abidjan’s 10 different production sites in 5 towns.
