Community Financing Programme is Helping Farmers Adapt to Climate Change
A new financial savings group in Chea Sman village, Prasat Bakang district, is encouraging farmers to save money, invest in climate mitigation agricultural tactics, and increase their capital. The newly formed group from Mean Chey commune in Siem Reap has been selected as a case study to demonstrate successful programme development. Prasat Bakang is one district among five targeted districts in Siem Reap Province (SRP). The ongoing project supports district and commune officers by helping to mainstream and integrate Climate Change Adaption priorities into the sub-national investment programs. The primary aim of the project is to assist vulnerable rural Cambodians through the development of several different groups, including the Livelihood Improvement Groups (LIGs), Saving Groups (SGs), and Water User Groups (WUGs).
