Feasibility study: Private sector engagement in climate information and early warning services in Cambodia

There is significant potential for the private sector to engage in disaster risk reduction, particularly in the field of early warning. In this feasibility study, commissioned under the UNDP-supported project 'Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems to Support Climate-Resilient Development in Cambodia',  the potential for private sector engagement in this field within the Cambodian context is explored. The study identifies four tiers for potential private sector engagement within climate information services (CIS), with focus on partnership with the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology as the backbone of hydro-meteorological information and services.   “We have conducted an analysis of global and regional trends in climate information services that could be further explored and applied in Cambodia,” said Mr. Muhibuddin Usamah, UNDP Early Warning Systems Project Manager. “The report contains a landscape analysis, market review, and recommendations for private sector engagement in Cambodia, with reference to 10 identified sectors - aviation, agriculture, insurance and re-insurance, telecom, fisheries, water resources, energy, construction, tourism, and mining.”
