Working Group on Agriculture (WGA)

 

 

Established in 2002, the Working Group on Agriculture (WGA) has been working toward the implementation of priority projects under the Core Agriculture Support Program (CASP).

The working group, which includes senior agriculture officials of GMS countries, currently implements and monitors the Strategy for Promoting Safe and Environment-Friendly Agro-Based Value Chains and Siem Reap Action Plan, 2018-2022.

In tandem with the WGA Secretariat, WGA coordinators, who are senior agriculture ministry officials, are responsible for supervising the implementation of the strategy and action plan, and for reporting regularly to their respective Agriculture Ministers on the status.
