Project Description
Project on Community Adaption to Climate Change to ensure food security and vulnerability adaptation is formulated based on VRA assessment conducted on 9-10 October 2011 with 80 participants, 40 female, representing local villagers who have been affected by CC including local authority from Proeuk and Trapaing Beng villages, Svay Teap commune, and Preu Meas village, Chamkar Andoung commune, Chamkarleu district, Kampong Cham province. VRA findings conclude that local people in the four target villages have been facing problems of CC including prolonged dry spells and droughts, flooding and heavy rainfall that have caused damages to irrigation schemes, water body drying out, shortage of water for both wet and dry season rice farming for almost every year, making food security a challenge. This has made some poor households to resort to migrate for employment in provincial towns and Phnom Penh, or out of the countries such as Thailand and Malaysia to seek job and income generation to support their families and thus face a number of problems including separating from family, exploitation, violence, trafficking, and children abandoning school, HIV/AIDS, and malnutrition, particularly women. To address these issues the project proposes rehabilitation of ponds, building sluice gates, and repair of dikes, formulation of management committee, establishment of rice bank, and development of capacity of community committee to adapt to changes in rainfall pattern in collaboration with village and commune authorities and relevant stakeholders, and villagers in target areas, with funding request USD49,997.00 from UNDP. The total project budget USD69,661.00 includes USD19,164.96 matching fund from Phnom Srei for Development, USD500.00 from local communities and USD49,997.00 from UNDP. 1.2 Project goal To reduce vulnerability to CC of the people in 4 villages including Maha, Proek, Trapaing Beng and Preus Meas in Chamkarleu district, Kampong Cham province, through water management for irrigation.
