    A consortium of NGOs, funded by an anonymous donor, are implementing a two-year project in north-western Cambodia to provide 60,000 village residents in flood-prone areas with elevated safe areas, an early warning system and diversified income-generation activities.
    A lot of our thinking in these elements is informed by the design-dense, integrated farming system known as Permaculture, and has received generous intellectual inputs from international Permaculture experts such as Rico Zook . We are starting a Permaculture demonstration farm in Battambang, on land already partly developed by Ockenden.
