The Cambodia Climate Change Alliance - phase 3 (CCCA3) funded by the EU, Sweden, and UNDP, is supporting People In Need Cambodia (PIN) to develop an innovative Early Warning System to reduce the vulnerability of urban populations to floods. The primary target beneficiaries for this pilot project are the communities at risk of flooding in Battambang City. The project produced a digital elevation model for flood modelling, and conducted participatory consultations to design a multi-channel early warning system using public speakers, phone calls and Facebook posts.

“I do believe that this project will better inform Battambang city population about flood events and reduce people's vulnerability to flooding," said Mr. Pheng Sethy, Mayor of Battambang City
