Training on Data Analysis and AI Application for ANR Projects in Cambodia: Estimating Crop Yields Gaps in Rice SDP Project Areas

10 January 2023 to 12 January 2023

During the lockdowns and movement restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cambodia: Climate Resilient Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program (Rice SDP) explored ways to remotely monitor project implementation with the support of the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) funding. 

At the request of the royal government of Cambodia, the Rice SDP project office and ADB hosted a training workshop to discuss the technical process of the crop yield estimation at the individual plot level. Participants also discussed with experts some potential use of data analysis and AI for designing and implementing effective development projects in the country.
