PAIR II - Productive Asset to Improve Resilience

In recent years, we have been observing longer and more intense droughts and floods in the province of Preah Vihear, resulting in low crop collection, and shortage of water, strong variations in market prices and eventually leads to more vulnerability and food insecurity. Since 2016, this intervention has helped increase the resiliency of vulnerable households by providing food, which has contributed to prevent food shortage and food insecurity, in exchange for work to improve the household’s and communities’ assets. For this new phase, we propose to improve our previous mechanism of asset promotion, and integrate new types of assets answering the water and food shortage issues raised by the communities and identified by local authorities met, such as tertiary canals, home gardening and nutritious fruit trees.
