Feasibility study for the reuse of fecal sludge for agriculture – Siem Reap

Etude de faisabilité pour la valorisation des boues de vidange pour l'agriculture

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).

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.
