Prestigious Philippines prize awarded to Cambodian

The Ramon Magsaysay Award was given to Yang Saing Koma, president Cambodia agricultural NGO Centre d’Etude et de Développement Agricole Cambodgien (CEDAC), for his works in introducing new agricultural techniques to Cambodian farmers by the Ramon Magsaysay Foundation yesterday.

Yang Saing Koma is being recognised for “his creative fusion of practical science and collective will that has inspired and enabled vast numbers of farmers in Cambodia to become more empowered and productive contributors to their country’s economic growth,” according to the foundation’s press release.

The award comes as CEDAC celebrates its 15th anniversary and the award will encourage him to overcome any further obstacles, said Yang Saing Koma.
