Staying one step ahead of the weather in Cambodia

Cambodia is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. Extreme floods and droughts affect millions of people and country’s agriculture; in Cambodia, 70% of the total population are farmers.

Thanks to EU Humanitarian Aid and People in Need, the “1294” early warning system will be available countrywide in 2020. In addition, a new digital application “Smart Farming” helps the farmers to adapt; not only does it provide weather warnings, it also advises on farming practices.

Every year, EU Humanitarian Aid supports projects that make communities safer around the world.
