The USAID-funded ADAPT Asia-Pacific project in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD) of the Royal Cambodia Government held a workshop in Siem Reap, Cambodia to disseminate the results of the study on 11 pilot community ponds for climate proofing in Banteay Meanchey Province.  More than 30 government officials representing the national and provincial government institutions participated in the workshop and shared their feedback on the results of the study.  

Using the feedback of the workshop and field visits, ADAPT Asia-Pacific will develop a methodological guideline on design and management of climate-proofed community ponds that will be used by the MRD for both designing community ponds potentially in six provinces (Kampong Chnang, Pursat, Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Siem Reap, and Kampong Thom) of Cambodia, and for preparing sub-projects for subsequent financing from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The activity has been implemented in close collaboration with USAID/Cambodia, ADB and the Royal Cambodian Government.
