The Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) is a joint initiative of the Royal Government of Cambodia and development partners to address climate change in Cambodia. It provides a unified engagement point to pool resources for the mainstreaming of climate change in national and sub-national policies and programmes.
The CCCA has been active since 2010, with significant results including the development of the Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014-2023 (CCCSP) and corresponding strategic plans and actions plans in fourteen priority ministries and agencies, the successful operation of a grant facility (42 Government and NGO projects supported in key areas of the climate change response), and increased visibility and understanding of climate change, both within Government and in society at large.
The third phase of the Cambodia Climate Change Alliance programme (2019-2024) builds on these initial achievements and aims to support the scaling-up of the climate change response at national level and in priority sectors by focusing on three main drivers of change:
i. Ensuring that locally relevant, reliable information on climate change is generated and available to key stakeholders;
The CCCA is closely aligned with the national institutions in charge of climate change. It is implemented by the Department of Climate Change (DCC), within the General Secretariat of the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD), an inter-ministerial body bringing together the representatives of thirty-six ministries and agencies, and twenty-five provincial governors.
The CCCA engages a broad range of stakeholders in line with their respective roles in the climate change response, and promote innovative partnerships between government, civil society, academia and the private sector. It also works constantly on improving information and knowledge availability on climate change and ensures that the information is reliable and updated.
