The Climate resilience in selected value chains is enhanced by
Familiarising small farmers with climate-resilient production methods
Training companies purchasing and processing agricultural good to promote and disseminate cultivation methods adapted to climate change.
Familiarising the public and private sector with the issue of climate resilience and fostering the nationwide dialogue
Processing national experiences and making them available on a regional level
GIZ CRAS focuses on „Strengthening the resilience of poor population groups to climate change in selected ASEAN states, taking special account of the impact of COVID-19 in Cambodia and Viet Nam“. The project is cooperating with the Ministry of Agri-culture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) in Cambodia and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) in Viet Nam. CRAS is designed to support value chain actors in particular smallholder farmers of cassava and cashew in Cambodia, as well as coffee (farmers) in Viet Nam.
The project is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) from March 2021 to February 2024 with a contribution of up to six Million Euro.
