Joint NAP-GSP/GIZ support mission to advance longer-term adaptation planning in Cambodia
The NAP-GSP and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) held a mission to Cambodia in February 2014 to support the NAP process. The mission was undertaken following the request of the Ministry of Environment (MoE) of Cambodia.
28 February 2014: The overall objective of the NAP-GSP/GIZ technical support mission was to undertake a stocktaking of adaptation initiatives relevant to national adaptation planning in Cambodia and to identify aspects which require strengthening to potentially support the NAP process. The joint NAP-GSP/GIZ team examined Cambodia’s options for a NAP process, together with the MoE and other key actors, including the Ministry for Economy and Finance and the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology.
Cambodia has recently launched its Climate Change Strategic Plan. This together with other respective sectoral strategies and plans will need to be closely aligned to the NAP process.
Based on the results of this stocktaking exercise, the MoE will be assisted to develop a road map for the NAP process. This road map will help to determine additional technical advisory needs, assign stakeholders for technical cooperation and develop a timelime for the NAP process.
