Improving household food security in Cambodia through integration of poultry production into existing home gardening programsAbstract:
Results of the pilot project on household poultry production have revealed significant improvement on household food security; both for the production as well as the consumption of poultry products. In ddition, Household Poultry Producers (HPP) have also generated additional income from selling surplus poultry and eggs produced. This additional income allows the household to acquire better quality foods, such as fish and other meat, and it also contributes to the improvement of the household socio-economic situation. It is recommended that this project be expanded to target more households who already participate in the homestead gardening project, so that the contribution of homestead food production on household food security can be maximized, thus improving nutritional status of the household members.
