Cambodia

In Cambodia the average income is about $750 per year. Eighty-percent of the population lives in the countryside, and fifty-seven percent of the labour force is engaged in agriculture, which is dependent on the monsoon rains and irrigation from the Mekong River. In recent years the timing of the spring and fall monsoons has become more sporadic and unpredictable, making rainfed rice growing more risky due to prolonged drought periods. Erosion and flooding are also becoming increasingly problematic and pose threats to the farming community.

World Renew is responding to poverty in Cambodia by working in partnership with the Mission Alliance (MA) of Norway, Tear Fund UK, Foods Resource Bank, 8 local churches, 5 small locally registered non-government organizations and 3 local networks.
