Cambodia Partnership for Sustainable Agriculture, known as CPSA, is a multi-stakeholder platform, compared to a networking group having many parties involved, established by Grow Asia in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Cambodia in 2016. CPSA works in collaboration with the Cambodian government, especially the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, the Ministry of Commerce, private sectors, Farmer Organizations, Finance Institutions, Civil Societies, and other key stakeholders. They work together to address food security system issues in Cambodia, according to Mr. Ly Sereyrith, Manager Director of the Cambodia Partnership for Sustainable Agriculture (CPSA).

CPSA is primed to improve the productivity, inclusiveness, and competitiveness of Cambodia’s agriculture sector and to equip farmers (growers) with market intelligence and business linkages towards high-value exports. CPSA provides a platform for collaboration which main principles, such as (1) multi-stakeholder and inclusive, (2) market-led, (3) smallholder focused, (4) and locally-driven. 

CPSA along with its supporters and strategic partners work cooperatively to promote the agricultural sector. CPSA tries to link all stakeholders (the producers and customers) and integrate them to be more inclusive where businesses can work together at all levels. CPSA contributes to the development of agriculture through various means, such as, training on technical skills, cultivation techniques (the use of land and fertilizers, choosing crops, etc.), the digital literacy with respect to making use of technology tools in agriculture to increase productivity. On top of these, CPSA provides consultations for business developments and project designs for its donors as well as partners.
