This new phase of the Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) programme builds on the achievements of the first phase (2010-14) and aims to strengthen national systems and capacities to support the implementation and coordination of Cambodia’s climate change response. It is anchored to the National Climate Change Committee, and managed by the Climate Change Department of the Ministry of Environment.
The CCCA includes a mix of technical and policy advisory support, and financial support (grants). It engages a broad range of stakeholders in line with their respective roles in the climate change response, and promotes innovative partnerships between government, civil society, academia and the private sector.
Key areas of intervention include climate change legal framework, national and sectoral monitoring and evaluation frameworks for climate change, testing and dissemination of adaptation/mitigation approaches, strengthening of planning and budgeting systems for the mainstreaming of climate change finance, and support to research, development and learning on climate change.

Cambodia is consistently ranked among the top ten countries most vulnerable to Climate Change, and among the three most vulnerable in Asia. This is due in large part to a relatively low adaptive capacity. Efforts made in recent years have allowed Cambodia to develop a comprehensive plan for the climate change response (Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014-23), as well as the corresponding key sector plans. Key governmental and non-governmental institutions have also had the opportunity to manage their first climate change projects, on a pilot basis. The focus of this new phase is on supporting implementation of the proposed response, through the main activities outlined above.
