Mainstreaming Climate Change Resilience into Development Planning in Cambodia


Excerpt from IIED: 'Between November 2011 and October 2012, government staff from various countries came together at a course facilitated by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) to share and reflect on their countries’ experiences and needs around integrating Climate Change into development planning. As a follow-up to this initiative, the Cambodia Climate Change Alliance supported the Royal Government of Cambodia to develop a country paper on Cambodia’s experience to date with Climate Change mainstreaming. The paper reviews progress and challenges to date at three key levels or “building blocks”: enabling environment, policy and planning, and programmes and projects.'

The Cambodia paper can be found on the IIED site
