Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA)
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 into national and sub-national policies and programmes.
The CCCA has been active since 2010, and the current third phase of the programme (2019-2024) builds on the main achievements of the previous phases:
- the development of the Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014-2023 (CCCSP) and corresponding fourteen associated action plans (CCAPs) developed by key ministries;
- the operation of the grant facility (42 Government and NGO projects supported in key aspects of climate change); and
- the increasing of visibility and understanding of climate change, both within Government and the society.
The CCCA 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 programme engages a wide range of stakeholders and promotes innovative partnerships between government, civil society, academia and the private sector. It also works constantly on improving information and knowledge available on climate change and ensures that the existing data is reliable and updated.
