Who we are
For improvement of agricultural productivity and sustainable
Development Action is a Cambodian NGO whose mission is to
support poor, helpless and displaced people in Cambodia. We
create opportunities for personal development and collective
Our aim is to improve rural people's living
conditions through sustainable agriculture development and
community based livelihood enhancement. We work directly with
grass-root level and development partners to help communities
and vulnerable people affected by economic defeat and
displacement become self-sufficient.
What we do
We help by improving productivity in the farming practices, helping the
people find alternative forms of employment, and empowering communities
to be self-reliant and independent. Our main activities include small
scale irrigation, rice, horticulture and fruit tree production, animal
husbandry and rural credit and agricultural cooperatives.
Our operations began in 1998 in Battambang in north-western Cambodia,
and have expanded to neighboring provinces. We have implemented a wide
range of projects such as providing emergency help to vulnerable
families and families on de-mined land and for post-drought disasters.
We have also responded to flood disasters and provided agricultural seed
and equipment to returned refugees. Our current projects range from food
security to community base livelihood enhancement. Our social economical
development projects include supporting teenagers at risk of trafficking
with non-formal education and integrated farming skills.
