Mr. Sum Thy, Director of the Climate Change Department and CCCA’s Programme Manager, warmly welcomed the new CCCA’s grantees. He mentioned that “climate change is a cross cutting issue which has​ been taken into account by the Royal Government, and this grant facilities mechanism is part of necessary elements to support the 10-year Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan effectively. This training on grant implementation guidelines will allow grantees to have a clear understanding of the procedures and reporting requirements of the General Secretariat of NCSD for this CCCA programme.

For this first round of CCCA Grant Facilities Window 1, the total allocated funding is an amount of US$ 2,250,000 earmarked Ministries/Agency with approved Climate Change Action Plans (CCAPs). The initiatives have to be in line with their CCAP priorities, demonstrate added value in relation to other existing initiatives and must directly contribute to concrete climate change mitigation or adaptation results in the field.
