The Phnom Penh Post —
Through Mekong-Lancang Cooperation (MLC), Cambodia has implemented 55 projects worth $21 million, six of which were through the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, according to agriculture minister Veng Sakhon.
In a recent Facebook post, the ministry said it had acquired the projects worth more than $2.6 million to solve problems of deteriorating soil quality and raising the living standards of local communities.
Sakhon said the projects included forest restoration and promoting sustainable forest use in Asia, combatting illegal fisheries along the Mekong River and contributing to sustainable forest management in the Mekong-Lancang region.
“The main activities of these projects are the preparation of regional-level meetings, training and exchanges between member countries. But the Covid-19 crisis has hindered some of the projects,” he said.
