CAVAC regularly undertakes research and analysis to inform its strategies or support broader policy engagement. The Program focuses on selective applied research rather than pure research.

In 2019 CAVAC conducted an exploratory study into the effects of access to sustainable irrigation services on women and men farmers. This report offers valuable insights for policy makers and project and infrastructure managers into how good design and management of irrigation schemes can have transformational impacts on the communities that use them.
This study aims to understand Cambodian rural crop farmers’ ownership and usage of phones, with a specific interest in smartphone ownership, the functions and applications used on these devices, and behaviours and patterns in internet consumption.
This report studies the impact of three irrigation schemes, with a special emphasis on: (i) their contribution to the household income of farmers and to increases in agricultural production; and (ii) ‘proof of concept’ of the value for money and (financial) sustainability of the approach.
