Cardno supports the implementation of the Cambodia Agricultural Value Chain Program (CAVAC) on behalf of the Australian Government. CAVAC works to increase the productivity and incomes of small farmers and trade in milled rice and other crops by strengthening market systems and investing in irrigation infrastructure.
Irrigation farmers throughout Cambodia, including in CAVAC irrigation scheme command areas, have intensive cropping practices and face various challenges in preparing, sowing, maintaining, and harvesting their crops. CAVAC is considering using the Farmer Water User Community (FWUC) structure to support farmers in the schemes to overcome the various farming challenges they face, specifically by establishing a FWUC-Agricultural Support Member (ASM) mechanism.
CAVAC is seeking an experienced Consultant to support the Program to define and establish a FWUC-ASM mechanism. It is envisioned that the FWUC-ASM mechanism will comprise a core group of people in FWUC Committees and lead farmers in CAVAC irrigation schemes who will act as local resource people and support farmers in their areas.
