The Swedish government and UNDP today co-signed $3.34 million agreement to support Cambodia’s climate change alliance for three years.
The Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) is a flagship climate change programme in Cambodia, implemented by UNDP and the National Council for Sustainable Development, according to a press release.
The CCCA has partnered with the government, NGOs, academia and private sector to respond to climate change challenges in Cambodia since 2009, it said.
Bjorn Haggmark, Sweden’s ambassador to Cambodia, said climate change is an existential threat and requires speedy and ambitious measure.
“The CCCA programme allows a wide range of key actors in Cambodia to do more to protect the environment, mitigate the effects of climate change and to strengthen implementation of the Paris Agreement, Sweden supports in this way sustainable development”, he said.
