We support rural development in Cambodia
Established in July 2014, Vivre de sa Terre is a French association of agricultural services that actively supports Cambodian farmers and takes part in sustainable rural development in Northwestern Cambodia.
To start with, its founders shared the everyday life of Cambodian farmers for one year in Banan district, to understand and study farming practices and ways of thinking.
Today, Vivre de sa Terre is promoting agroecology as a means of improving the living conditions of farmers in a sustainable way.
Developing agroecology in Cambodia requires accurate knowledge of the ecosystems in the Mekong region. Vivre de sa Terre contributes to stimulating applied research focused on this emerging discipline by organizing studies and experiments to design efficient cropping systems adapted to small-scale farmers.
Capacity building of students, farmers and technicians is the main challenge to implement agroecology. Vivre de sa Terre designs training materials in Khmer and disseminates scientific and technical knowledge in agroecology to facilitate access to knowledge.
Using value-added ecosystems, based on productive capacity is an effective way to develop profitable farming. Vivre de sa Terre supports farmers initiatives and local organizations by providing technical support to empower Cambodians of socio-economic dependencies.
As a science of sustainable agriculture, agroecology consists of improving ecosystems’ productive potential by adapting crop to their environment. This approach mobilizes ecosystem biological processes in a way to turn them into production factors. Learn more about agroecology
