Structuring and management of the “drain sludge” sector and production of organic fertilizers – Siem Reap
Agrisud and SIA, an engineering consultancy firm specializing in sanitation, carried out a study prior to the agricultural recovery project for Siem Reap sludge.
This study demonstrates the potential for using this sludge as natural fertilizer in the face of the high needs of peri-urban agriculture.
Several actors are involved in this project, notably the Municipality of Siem Reap, the main beneficiary. The objective is to improve public hygiene on the one hand (management of sewage sludge) and, on the other hand, to develop an agricultural sector (organic fertilizer).
Expected results:Under examination in 2019 Budget :estimated: €1,700,000 over 2020-2023 Funding :SIAAP, AIMF, AESN Project management :Agrisud Partnerships :Siem Reap Province, SIAAP, AIMF, SIA Conseil, AESN
Agroecological intensification and Diversification of family farming – Siem Reap
With the proximity of the temples of Angkor, the tourist growth of the city of Siem Reap is accompanied by a strong demand for fresh products. This demand is met largely by imports from neighboring countries, excluding small local farmers who face multiple constraints.
The actions are aimed at small family farms and focus on agroecological intensification and improving marketing. These small farms become self-sufficient in food, earn regular incomes and help supply local markets. The marketing component is particularly active, driven by growing demand for healthy and local products.
Organizing a marketing group allows small producers to seize collective economic opportunities which were previously inaccessible to them
