The USAID-HARVEST program is a five year activity that provides technical assistance, training, material, and other resources as needed to improve food security through enhanced agricultural development and rational management of natural resources. USAID-HARVEST is the lead program for the U.S. Government’s development assistance efforts to address food security, global climate change and biodiversity conservation in Cambodia.
