The Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) is an initiative led by the Ministry of Environment and supported by the European Union, Denmark, Sweden and UNDP. Its overall objective is to strengthen the capacity of the National Climate Change Committee (NCCC) to fulfil its mandate to address climate change and to enable line ministries and NGOs to implement priority climate change actions.
CCCA is now looking to hire a qualified and experienced local consultant to conduct a final review of the CCCA Programme (final review for 5 Results of CCCA Programme as well as the 12 pilot projects closing in 2014). The local consultant will work closely with an international consultant / team leader.
Svay Rieng Province is located in the southeast of Cambodia and covered by lowlands. Most families living in this province mainly depend on firewood to cook their meals due to the lack of other alternative sources of energy. The dependency on firewood can lead to unsustainable use of the forest resources in this province.
The bio-digester technology is one of the available options in Cambodia to reduce the demand of local communities for timber and non-timber forest products. It can provide clean energy for cooking meal and lighting the house by burning the methane gas released from animal manure.
With funding support from CCCA-Trust Fund, the Department of Research and Protected Areas of the Ministry of Environment has been implementing one project entitled “Capacity Strengthening for Community Protected Area Communities in Boeung Per Wildlife Sanctuary to Adapt to the Impact of Climate Change” located in Kampong Thom, Siem Reap and Preah Vihear provinces.
From 19 to 20 December 2012, the Cambodia Climate Change Alliance Trust Fund Secretariat (CCCA-TFS), organized a two-day training workshop on Vulnerability Reduction Assessments (VRA) at Himawari Hotel, Phnom Penh, as part of capacity development services provided to grant recipientsof the CCCA 2nd Call for Proposal. The objectives of the training workshop were to help build the capacities of grant recipients to conduct baseline and end-line data collection on climate change vulnerability of their project beneficiaries. 33 participants attended the training.
