This learning report was developed at the conclusion of the UNDP-supported ‘Strengthening Climate Information and Early Warning Systems in Cambodia to Support Climate Resilient Development and Adaptation to Climate Change’ project, financed by the GEF-Least Developed Countries Fund.
The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology (MoWRAM) is a source of important information for Cambodians. As an agricultural society, it is critical to have up-to-date information about upcoming weather and extreme events such as storms and floods. MoWRAM provides these forecasts both via their website and Facebook page. This analysis provides an overview of how these pages are used, including when during the day/year there are peaks in usage, as well as what sort of interaction the Cambodian public are having with MoWRAM via these resources.
Climate is not dictated to by man-made provincial and country borders – instead, there might be more accurate ways of zoning climate for forecasting and reporting.
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.
