Impact of Climate Change Programs in Cambodia: Vulnerability, Poverty, and Gender
Climate change programs have been implemented in the affected countries to reduce the negative impacts and to make the communities resilient to climate change. The Ministry of Rural Development of Cambodia has been running two climate change programs: 1.) Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) - The five-year Mekong River Island Connectivity Project (2016–2020), and 2.) Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) project ‘Climate Proofing Integrated Rural Community Development’ in Kampong Svay district, Kampong Thom province
The main objectives of this action research are to:
- To get lessons learnt of two climate change programs on climate change resilience at the community level, and how these programs affect different populations, including vulnerable groups.
- Generate research evidence that informs the implementation of the new rural development programs (RDP) and rural strategic development programs (RSDP which incorporate climate change, and to make recommendations to improve these documents.
