The project also has three specific objectives:

(1). to strengthen capacity of sub-national authorities through stronger coordination mechanisms, training and study exchanges; and support for demonstrating CCA initiatives;

(2). Strengthen relationships and policy dialogue between national and sub-national authorities in CCA through involvement of focal points from key national department;

(3). Strengthen community awareness about CCA through outreach and awareness activities, and support for mechanisms that promote community participation and management of national resources and climate change adaptation.

KEY RESULTS
The TACCI-PV project expects to produce the following key results:

  • Stronger authorities at Provincial level, linked to national and community level, including stronger coordination and cooperation, awareness and knowledge about climate change adaptation and participation in demonstrations and study exchanges;
  • Stronger relationships between key national and sub-national departments, sharing of information and dialogue about policy related to climate change adaptation;
  • Local communities more prepared for climate change events and involved in local environmental actions. Fishing and Forestry Protection Zones managed by community;
  • DVD and other materials showcase good practices to the broader community including Government, civil society and community members.

BACKGROUND
Climate Change in Cambodia “could have major consequences on hydrology and water resources, agriculture and food security, terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems, coastal zones and marine ecosystems, and human health. Adverse impacts include increased flood and drought magnitude and damages in temperate and tropical Asia, reductions in crop yields, decrease water availability, and increase in the number of people exposed to vector and water-borne diseases” (NAPA for Cambodia, page 1). Prey Veng Province was identified as most the vulnerable province to floods, and second most vulnerable to droughts.

With strong support from the office of the Governor of Prey Veng; especially department of agriculture, fisheries and environment, the project integrates a multi-sectoral approach to capacity building for climate change adaptation in Prey Veng Province involving government and community- through strengthening capacity and coordination of sub- national authorities; enhancing national and sub- national relationships and dialogue; and enhancing all stakeholders’ awareness, participation and management of natural resources and climate change adaptation processes.
