Coastal Adaptation and Resilience Planning Project

DHI picture

PURPOSE OF PROJECT

The project aims to increase resilience of coastal communities and ecosystems to climate change through adaptation planning, demonstrated targeted local interventions and provision of practical learning experience in adaptation planning to the National Climate Change Committee and Climate Change Department.

 

KEY RESULTS

  1. Improved climate change knowledge integrated into land use and coastal development plans;
  2. Increased resilience of coastal communities and coastal system buffers to climate change and improved livelihoods.

BACKGROUND

The coastal adaptation and resilience planning project is designed to continue the integrated and coordinated approach to coastal management and climate change adaptation in Cambodia. The overriding concern in the implementation strategy is sustainability. Consequently, the approach focuses on further consolidating the institutional framework established for coastal area management while strengthening the local manpower resources to continue the management without support.

The project approach concentrates efforts in the early part to giving high attention to mobilizing national coordination and support through capacity building targeting the Coastal Coordination Unit (CCU) in the Ministry of Environment and its linkages to other departments in the ministry and to the Focal Points from institutions that are members of the Coastal Steering Committee. After this the assistance will predominantly focus on the activities in the provinces while facilitating the national coordination by CCU. Throughout implementation theproject will collaborate closely with the CCCA Programme and other programmes and projects identified in the component document, in order to assure compatible capacity building in the assistance provided, which at the end of the day targets the same environment and natural resources and share target groups and individuals within government institutions at national and provincial levels.

In line with the previous work in the coastal area of Cambodia the project will focus on effective capacity building where current sector mandates and responsibilities are viewed in the context of integration and coordination in all phases of development management and planning and where technical solutions and tools are adapted to the current situation in Cambodia. It is imperative that capacity building departs from a thorough understanding of the present capacity levels among the target groups while at the same time responding to acknowledged technical requirements for sustainable development and natural resources protection. The project includes a mix of technical studies, capacity development and adaptation pilots in target provinces. A participatory and facilitating approach will be adopted to ensure sustainability and ownership after the completion of the final phase.
