In 2013, with the support of GGGI, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) approved a National Policy and Strategic Plan for Green Growth for the period 2013-2030. This plan aims to turn Cambodia into a green economy through the more effective use of natural resources, wider promotion of environmental sustainability, creating opportunities for green jobs and the adoption of green technologies, improving access to green finance and encouraging green investment.
Many towns and cities in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) are facing increased vulnerability and exposure due to climate extremes combined with rapid and unplanned expansion of urban population and infrastructure. These towns are susceptible to flooding, drought, storms and other natural hazards, which are likely to become more frequent and more severe with climate change. This will negatively affect human settlements and economic activities in the region.

About: Urban areas are recognised internationally as a critical component for realising green growth. Cities concentrate environmental issues from air and water pollution, solid waste and GHG emissions, and frequently face challenges posed by poor drainage, sanitation and flood control. Moreover, providing urban services and infrastructure offers opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of provision while increasing resilience and addressing social and economic development needs.
These information posters were developed as part of the Bioengineering and Green Infrastructure Session delivered at the 2015 Mekong Forum on Water, Food, and Energy [...]
Natural systems are the essential foundation for Mekong town development and rehabilitation. The Resource Kit for Building Resilience and Sustainability in Mekong Towns is a seven-volume kit that promotes the maintenance and use of natural systems as a key strategy for building sustainability and resilience in urban areas. Prepared for the Asian Development Bank by ICEM as part of the award-winning TA 8186, the resource kit is built on the experience and expertise of a wide variety of professionals from the Mekong region and abroad.
About: Action to tackle climate change in Cambodia is crucial. Cambodia will be a hotspot for climate change in the region. Average maximum daily temperatures in the wet season are projected to increase from between 1.7 to 5.3°C. Average dry season temperatures will also increase with a range of between 1.5 to 3.5°C. Trends in precipitation are also expected to change over the coming decades. Seasonal variability in rainfall patterns will grow, resulting in wetter wet seasons and drier dry seasons.
About: Rapid urbanization is taking place in South East Asia, with cities in the region expanding five times faster than those in member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Urban growth in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) in the next 50-100 years is expected to be primarily experienced in small and medium-sized cities and peri-urban areas along existing and new growth corridors. Many of these areas are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
The Mekong Delta is affected by upstream development – often in ways not fully understood and with uncertain impacts on natural, social and economic systems which sustain life and well being for millions of people in Vietnam. With expanding plans for major developments on the mainstream and its tributaries, those impacts are likely to become much more serious. Vietnam and its riparian neighbours do not have adequate scientific understanding for informed decision making on Mekong mainstream hydropower projects, especially on their downstream effects.

About: The Mekong River Basin faces a grave threat from climate change. Communities and governments must work together to develop and promulgate adaptation strategies that preserve the lives and livelihoods of some 60 million people. ICEM is working with DAI and SEA START as part of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Mekong Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project to generate new data, new approaches and to spur adaptive change in the Mekong River Basin.
About: The Government of Nepals (GoN’s) National Adaptation Programme of Action for Climate Change (NAPA) outlines 43 adaptation measures grouped into nine priority areas or ‘profiles’. Stemming from the NAPA, a Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) has been developed focusing on long-term interventions aimed at enhancing climate resilience in Nepal. Mainstreaming climate change risk management in development is a technical assessment component of the SPCR. The expected outcome is that the GoN’s infrastructure development programs, policies and projects incorporate safeguards to address the effects of climate change.
About: The objective of the project in northern Vietnam is to demonstrate effective bio-engineered solutions which, where possible, provide ‘win-win’ outcomes for resilience of rural infrastructure to climate risk and opportunities for community livelihood enhancement.
