Reaching Resilience: Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems in Cambodia
In rural Cambodia, extreme weather events driven by climate change have taken lives and damaged livelihoods. Frequent floods and droughts threaten to tip subsistence farmers back into poverty.
With funding from the Global Environment Facility-Least Developed Countries Fund, and implementation support from the United Nations Development Programme, the Cambodian Government is strengthening climate information and early warning systems, building resilience and preparing for the future. Since 2015, the project has installed 29 automatic hydrological stations, 24 automatic weather stations and 5 drought information hubs, as well as training more than 450 farmers in drought-resistant agricultural techniques.
