  • Cambodia Climate Change AllianceCambodia Climate Change AllianceThe Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) is a comprehensive and innovative approach to address climate change in Cambodia. It includes a unified engagement point for development partners and a multi-donor financing facility to provide resources for climate change capacity building and implementation at national and local level. The CCCA is anchored in the government’s National Climate Change Committee (NCCC), which is the mandated government coordinating and policy support entity for all aspects of climate change.

  • Cambodia Community Based Adaptation ProgrammeCambodia Community Based Adaptation ProgrammeThe purpose of the Cambodia Community Based Adaptation Programme (CCBAP) is to reduce vulnerability and increase adaptive capacity of the targeted communities to manage the additional risks of climate change. It aims to reduce the vulnerability of Cambodia’s agricultural sector to climate induced changes in water resources availability.

  • Promoting Climate Resilient Water Management and Agricultural Practices in Rural CambodiaPromoting Climate Resilient Water Management and Agricultural Practices in Rural CambodiaThe aim of the project is to make Cambodia’s agricultural sector less vulnerable to changes in the availability of water resources resulting from climate change. It will also contribute to the broader goal of enhancing adaptive capacity to prevent food insecurity in Cambodia induced by climate change. The project will work to increase awareness of climate change, demonstrate climate resilient practices in agriculture and water resource management and integrate responses into provincial, district and commune development plans. The project is the first designed to respond to the priorities identified in Cambodia’s National Adaptation Programme of Action to Climate Change (NAPA).

  • Sustainable Forest ManagementSustainable Forest ManagementThe project aims to strengthen sustainable forest management (SFM) through integrating community-based SFM for Community Forests (CFs) and Community Protected Areas (CPAs) into policy, planning, and implementation. It aims to create increased production of improved wood stoves and markets for sustainable bio-energy technologies which reduce CO2 emissions.

  • Cambodia UN-REDD National ProgrammeCambodia UN-REDD National ProgrammeThe programme aims to enable Cambodia to be ready for REDD+ implementation, including development of necessary institutions, policies and capacity. It would help Cambodia to recognize biodiversity conservation co-benefit and to achieve its national target of maintain 60% forest cover, which is a key indicator for the Cambodia Millennium Development Goal 7. It would also align with the National Forest Programme which aims to develop and manage forests to ensure the sustainable benefits for improving livelihoods, environmental services and overall economic development.

  • Forest Carbon Partnership Facility REDD+ Readiness ProjectThe aim of the project is to assist Cambodia in tackling forest degradation and deforestation, and promote forest conservation through offering results-based payments as financial incentives for reduction of verifiable carbon emission.

  • Capacity Building in Knowledge Management for Rio ConventionsCapacity Building in Knowledge Management for Rio ConventionsThe goal of this project is to improve the implementation of three Rio Conventions, i.e. UNFCCC, UNCBD and UNCCD, in Cambodia through the development of national capacities to better coordinate and generate information related to the implementation of these Conventions.

  • Scaling-up Climate Change in Sub-national Planning and BudgetingScaling-up Climate Change in Sub-national Planning and BudgetingThe project is building upon the successful interventions of integrating climate change adaptation into local planning which have been promoted by the three ongoing projects under UNDP: 1. Promoting Climate Resilient Water Management and Agricultural Practices; 2. Cambodia Community Based Adaptation Programme; and 3. Local Governance and Climate Change. Good practices such as promoting vulnerable household participation in local development planning process, scaling-up climate change planning tools (i.e. vulnerability reduction assessment), adoption of resilient agriculture techniques, and promoting roles of different service providers in climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction will be promoted. In addition, the project will enhance the government’s initiative to develop climate change mainstreaming guideline into sub-national planning. The guideline will contribute to government efforts on climate change financing at the sub-national levels.

OUR WORK - Environment & Energy

Responding to the emerging challenges posed by climate change and degradation of natural resources, UNDP’s support focuses on: 1) development of climate change policies and financing mechanisms; 2) pro-poor sustainable forest management and REDD+; and 3) community resilience to climate risks and disasters.
