The project seeks to improve livelihoods of about 630,000 households in the five provinces in Tonle Sap Basin by 2020 through (i) improved rural infrastructures to support agricultural productivity, market access, and the quality of life in rural communities; (ii) improved capacity of smallholder farmers to increase agricultural productivity; (iii) improved agricultural policy environment, (iv) improved availability and access to quality seeds; (v) increased access to agricultural information and market data; and (vi) effective project management that enables timely project completion within the agreed budget.
The TSSD is co-financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the Government of Finland and the Royal Government of Cambodia.
