Cambodia-Australia Agricultural Value Chain Program

Innovation

CAVAC has a strong focus on innovation right across the Program. Indeed, innovation is fundamental to productivity growth. It is important to recognise that innovation is not limited to digital technology; it can come in many forms. Examples of CAVAC innovation include the use of cashless payments for irrigation fees, promotion of processing by-products such as biochar, commercialisation of research outputs, low-cost direct seeding technology, and establishing new models for collaboration between public and private sectors on irrigation schemes.
