UNDP has been implementing the project “Promoting the use of solar technologies for agriculture and rural development in Cambodia” since November 2020 with a grant from Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA), Republic of Korea. The project objective is to increase the resilience of the agriculture sector in Cambodia and Myanmar to climate change through three-pronged interventions: (i) Supporting the uptake of resilient agricultural practices, (ii) enhancing the agricultural value chain, and (iii) promoting and scaling up the adoption of solar technologies for water pumping and powering market facilities. In Cambodia, the project is being implemented in Siem Reap and Kampong Thom Provinces. The project has two key outputs: (1) Increased smallholder farm productivity through adoption of innovative agricultural technology and an improved value chain; and (2) Enhanced awareness, capacities, adoption, and utilization of solar water pumping (SWP) solutions.
The project conducted field surveys in early 2021 to identify potential types of SWPs. The surveys have identified 6 potential configurations of SWP solutions that can be implemented. Subsequently, the project procured these SWP systems and installed them at 67 sites in early 2022. Although the supplier has provided basic training to local operators on the operation and maintenance of the SWP, it is important to enhance their skills further in addressing unexpected issues and failures while using the SWP systems in the future.
In order to sustainably operate and maintain the implemented solar SWP systems as well as encourage more farmers to shift away from diesel based pumping to SWP, capacity of the user needs to be strengthened including local engineers, and key actors such as already trained staff of provincial and local departments. This training also covers how to repair and replace damaged parts, and how to source quality components from local market.
The training will benefit relevant stakeholders in Kampong Thom and Siem Reap provinces to:
