PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Sweden and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on Thursday (April 23) co-signed a new contribution agreement of US$3.34 million to support the Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA) from 2020 to 2022, said a UNDP statement.

The CCCA is a flagship climate change programme in Cambodia, implemented by UNDP and the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD) since 2009, the statement said, adding that the programme is now entering its third phase (CCCA-3).

The programme provided opportunities for dozens of government institutions, NGOs, universities and private sector partners to test climate change adaptation and mitigation approaches, and leverage financing for successful initiatives, it said. - Xinhua
