Cambodia National Study: Promotion of Climate Resilience in Rice and Cassava

The Cambodian agricultural production system is characterized by smallholder farming. Cambodian farmers, who are generally economically resource poor, are among the people that are most vulnerable to climate change. Climatic threats to agricultural production, particularly the production of rice and cassava, include floods, droughts, pest and disease outbreaks, saltwater intrusion, extremely hot days, land degradation, and nutrient depletion, among others. To effectively respond to these threats, appropriate adaptation practices must be developed and implemented
