Women in the Face of Climate Change: the Driving Force for any Solution
Mar 8, 2016
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fifth assessment report, the world will continue to be vulnerable to climate change regardless of low or high emission scenarios.

Cambodia has made great progress in economic growth, poverty reduction and human development. However, a significant proportion of the population remains vulnerable to slipping back to poverty.
