2.    Project Description

Cambodia is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change impacts. Potential impacts of climate change were highlighted in the Modelling of Climate Change Impacts on Growth report in 2018 by the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD). Around 75% of its population resides in rural areas and is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts because the kingdom relies heavily on climate-sensitive sectors, including agriculture, land, water resources, infrastructure, forestry, human health, and fisheries. Cambodia has been remarkably successful in containing the spread of COVID-19 and preventing community transmission; however, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected Cambodia’s economy and society.
The Cambodian government prioritized climate change in her Rectangular Strategy, Phase 4, as one of the four main rectangles, called “Sustainable Development and Climate Change”. Following the sustainable finance prioritization, the government aims to make significant progress for climate finance in accordance with cross-sectoral policies, such as the Green Growth Strategic Plan, Cambodia National Environment Strategy and Action Plan 2016-2023, Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014-2023, and the National Policy on Green Development and the National Strategic Plan on Green Development 2013-2030.
Cambodia is actively engaged with the Green Climate Fund (GCF) through the Department of Climate Change (DCC) of the General Directorate of Policy and Strategy (GDPS) as a part of the strategy to respond to climate change. A year project “Resilient Recovery Rapid Readiness Support in Cambodia” is funded by GCF to be implemented by the DCC. The DCC will undertake the daily implementation and management of activities, conduct project monitoring, and prepare regular updates on the project's implementation progress.
