Cambodian Climate Hero Profile: Mr. Say Rith

Father-of-three Mr. Say Rith is excited about the future of agriculture in his home village of Dokpor, Takeo province. His enthusiasm stems from participation in training provided under a partnership between the United Nations Development Programme and DanChurchAid. As a result of the training, conducted in March 2019, Mr. Say has been one of the first Cambodians to implement drought resistant agricultural techniques into his farming practices across his four farm plots. Mr. Say’s contribution to continual growth in his community’s agriculture industry is clear: “I would like to learn more about contract farming so that prices can become stable and bring income to our communities.”
