The project “COVID-19 socio-economic recovery for returning migrants and host communities in North West Cambodia” supports job creation through the improvement of local infrastructure in remittance dependent communities in Siem Reap and Battambang Provinces. Funded by the Government of New Zealand, the project applies employment-intensive work methods, thereby offering new employment opportunities and income to poor and vulnerable households to mitigate recent job losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the project area experiences recurrent floods, there is a high focus on strengthening climate resilience through adaptation measures such as improving drainage systems, raising road embankment levels, surface repair and erosion protection.
