Examining Impact Of ‘Feed The Future’ Program In Cambodia

“Working with USAID over the past three years, I have had the opportunity to see tremendous growth and change in many countries, and that impact has been particularly felt in Cambodia as part of Feed the Future,” Greg Beck, USAID’s deputy assistant administrator for Asia, writes in the agency’s “IMPACTblog.” Noting a recent visit to Cambodia, where he “was able to see these changes taking place first-hand,” Beck writes, “The Feed the Future HARVEST program works in four provinces around the Tonle Sap Lake, Pursat, Battambang, Siem Reap and Kampong Thom areas of Cambodia with some of the highest rates of poor and food insecure families but some of the best opportunities to address these issues through improved agricultural practices. Together with the help of 22 Cambodian [non-governmental organizations (NGOs)], USAID has worked with and assisted over 47,000 households and beneficiaries including 102 schools and health centers in more than 461 villages” (8/9).
