Stung Chinit Irrigation and Rural Infrastructure Project, Cambodia

The project is located in the north-central part of Cambodia in the Province of Kampong Thom. The project comprises the first stage of a more extensive development, which eventually could bring full wet and dry season irrigation to approximately 12,000 ha. The project includes a very high proportion of farmer participation in decision-making from conception through to commissioning, water management and operation and maintenance.
