Irrigated agriculture

This paper gives an overview of water resource management for agricultural sector in Cambodia. The overuse of surface and ground water for this sector affect the water flow patterns, water quality changes due to excessive pesticide and fertiliser use, salinity and changes in habitat of wetlands and reservoirs. To address the irrigated agriculture issues, the Royal Government of Cambodia has the following strategies and policies: (i) to provide farmers with the quantity of water they need; (ii) to promote, where justifiable on economic or social grounds; (iii) to promote the development and extension of water management technologies; and (iv) to strengthen and expand Farmer Water User Communities.
