CCCA is a comprehensive and innovative approach to address climate change in Cambodia. The CCCA programme was designed to be fully aligned with and strengthen the national institutional framework for climate change. It plays a unique role in strengthening the national institutional framework for the coordination of the climate change response.
CCCA Phase 1 (2010-Jun 2014) is funded by European Union (EU), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and Danish International Development Agency (Danida). The overall objective of CCCA is to strengthen the capacity of the NCCC to fulfill its mandate to address climate change and to enable line ministries and Civil Society Organizations to implement priority climate change actions.
Result 1: Improved NCCC capacity to coordinate national policy making, capacity development, outreach/ advocacy efforts, and to monitor the implementation of national climate change strategy, policy and plans.
Result 2: Improved access to updated climate change information, knowledge and learning op‐ portunities at all levels.
Result 3: Strengthened capacity within the NCCC to mobilize and to effectively administer climate change funds and to prepare for a nationally owned trust fund.
Result 4: Increased resilience of coastal communi‐ ties and ecosystems to climate change through adaptation planning, demonstrated targeted local interventions and provision of practical learning experience in adaptation planning to the NCCC/ CCD.
Result 5: Strengthened capacity in RGC agencies and civil society organizations for developing and implementing climate change response initiatives in line with agreed national climate change priori‐ ties, independently or in partnerships, through access to new financial and technical resources.
Phase 2 (Jul 2014-Jun 2019) funded by European Union (EU), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). It is implemented by the Ministry of Environment/GSSD under coordination of Department of Climate Change (DCC).Read More
