Message from the Steering Committee Chair of CASIC
Dear Distinguished guests and supporters,
Allow me to warmly welcome you and appreciate your time and interest to learn more about the Cambodia Conservation Agriculture and Sustainable Intensification Consortium (CASIC).
As the Steering Committee Chair of CASIC, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) for endorsing the establishment of CASIC and therefore the commitment of the Royal Government of Cambodia to supporting the promotion of Conservation Agriculture and Sustainable Intensification (CA & SI) and agroecology in Cambodia. This has laid out an important milestone and a steppingstone towards the CA and SI and agroecology transition in Cambodia.
I would also like to extend my gratefulness to the existing development partners including French Agency for Development (AFD), Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID), who have been actively supporting CA & SI initiatives and interventions in Cambodia. I believe CASIC will be a resourceful sharing platform where CA and SI actors come together to promote and address the existing challenges in CA & SI practice; therefore, moving Cambodia towards the sustainable agriculture practice and modernization. Warmest regards,
Secretary of State, MAFF
Steering Committee Chair, CASIC
