Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The main stakeholders will be agribusinesses engaged in processing and trading of agricultural products within the selected value chains, and agricultural cooperatives who can potentially partner with those agribusinesses to increase value addition to selected agricultural products in the target provinces in Cambodia. These stakeholders were consulted and their needs are reflected in the project design. Selected financial institutions will participate in the project as participating financial institutions for the financial intermediation component. They have been fully consulted and agreed on the project objective and implementation arrangements. The project is concerned with establishing inclusive value chains with higher value addition for the selected agricultural products which will benefit farmers and other value chain stakeholders. The five target provinces have an average poverty rate that exceeds the national average. Smallholder farmers are among the poorest of the community and they will be engaged in the agribusiness value chains to achieve maximum supply effectiveness and will catalyze the emergence and growth of competitive agribusinesses. During the related TRTA, vulnerable groups at risk of being excluded from benefitting from the project due to lack of financial, human and/or social capital will be consulted to ensure that their needs are also reflected.
During Project Implementation Continuous consultation with stakeholders will be conducted during project implementation.
