Background
• Lack of clear and effective mechanism in
managing climate finance & climate
information mechanism in Cambodia
• Community priorities for climate change
adaptation has been overlooked, in the
planning and policy development
• Potential of NGOs network participating
in national policy/strategy dialogues
Goal
CSOs and NGOs are well coordinated,
cooperated and strengthened to influence
climate change policy and practices at the
national and international levels for the benefit
of the poor and most vulnerable communities
in Cambodia.
Approach
Target: National Climate Change Committee
(NCCC) under the coordination of the Ministry
of Environment (MoE), Cambodia Climate
Change Alliance (Trust Fund) and UN Climate
Talks
Allies: NGO Forum, CCCN, partners of Joint
Climate Change Initiative (JCCI), Cambodia
Center for Independent Media, and Nexus (C4D)
Activities
 Enhance capacity building and information
sharing of the network members
 Research on climate finance and information
(gaps, local needs and recommendations)
 Policy dialogs and consultations such as
Farmer Forum and National Forum on Climate
Change
Activities (Cont.)
• Media support of advocacy: train journalists to
produce a radio news feature that covers the
focused themes (CCCSP, climate finance and
information mechanism)
• Engage with UN Climate Talks such as BKK talk
and COPs (CSO joint statement and comment
on government position toward the UN
climate negotiations)
Results
Increased knowledge of the network members
on climate change issues
Better coordination and information sharing
among the network members
Results (Cont.)
 Increased cooperation and coordination with
the relevant government institutions. Role and
capacity of CSOs is recognized by the gov’t
 A joint climate change advocacy strategy of CSOs
networks
Results (Cont.)
 CSO comments and recommendations have
were incorporated into the national strategic
plans/policy frameworks
Results (Cont.)
 Influencing climate change policy at both
national and international levels to ensure that
climate change policy are benefiting the poor
and vulnerable communities
Lessons learnt and challenges
• The results can be measured by assessment,
observation and external stakeholders
• Advocacy needs be based on evident
• Joint advocacy effort is not the priority work of
the network members, so coordination is
challenging
• Co-funding approach seems successful in doing
advocacy esp. on research, publication.
Lessons learnt and challenges (Cont.)
• Different capacity and knowledge of the
network members on climate change. A clear
capacity development strategy is needed
• Climate change is too broad, so we need
specific focus and priority for advocacy such as
agriculture, water resource management,
disaster risk reduction, climate finance
mechanism, and REDD for rural populations
