Climate Change Adaptation

Climate change is not a legend, it is real and its impact is even very real.  Around 37 percent of Cambodia’s total workforce was directly engaged in the agriculture sector in 2017. Their farming practices strongly depend on a stable weather and climate variables such as a predictable rainfall time, the local weather, water availability, temperature and so forth. However, these are becoming not reliable anymore. Farmers need to acquire new knowledge, skills, technology and resources to be able to adapt to climate change

CTO has been working on:

  • Climate Change awareness raising and education
  • Innovative and Adaptive farming technology transfer to farmers
  • Adaptation training and strategy development for community people

Empowerment to Community People

And their Democratic and Civic Society Organisations

Community is the key to what we are doing. We believe that in order to bring about a long lasting change in social and economy status, we must focus on Community. CTO is working to help communities set up their community democratic and civil society organisations which works as platforms for community people to work cooperatively for mutual benefits. Community benefit is an effective and sustainable solution. Imagine building a house without a structural system. In order to build a good community we need a strong structural system.

Social and Economical Infrastructure access

For rural communities

We provide acess to social and economic infrastructures such as water reservoirs, but also irrigation system, road, primary schools which is the key to lives improvement, well-being of the rural communities in Cambodia.

CTO has been working with local rural communities to build:

  • Water Reservoirs
  • Irrigation canals
  • Class rooms and School facility renovations
  • School library constructions
  • Drinking water production facility for rural communties

Strengthening Farmer Livelihood and Economy

About 90% of the Cambodian population are farmers and their livelihood and economy totally depending on farming. However, in this integrated economy, farming alone is no longer relevant, farmers need to access to multiple skills beside farming such as: 

  • Innovative farming technology
  • Commercial farming
  • Farming capital mobilization
  • Commercialization of the product
  • Value added skill to their product
  • Marketing their product
  • Networking to protect their product price
  • Adaptive farming to climate change
  • Promoting high economic value crops farming
  • Promoting commercial livestock farming.
