If you have seen the LoCAL Timeline, then you know that any climate resilience action starts with a VRA - or Vulnerability Risk Assessment. As Mr Phum Phal (Coordination Officer LGCC) explains, without this information, you can not make a relevant strategy that truly addresses local needs. Donor coordination and people's participation are the other key ingredients to a successful response to climate change. Find out more in the video below...
The initiative has driven many other organizations to support the model implemented by the NCDDS (National Committee for Democratic Development Secretariat). This new LoCAL coverage is perfectly in tune with the government strategies to mainstream climate change at a cross sectoral level and at sub-national level. This scaling up is also supported by on-going climate change policies at national level: the Royal Government of Cambodia officially launched the first-ever, Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014-2023 in November 2013. The CCCSP captures the main strategic objectives and directions for a climate-smart development of Cambodia in the next 10 years.
At subnational level, LoCAL with NCDDS have pioneered the use of systematic ways to mainstream climate change at local levels. This careful implementation process was developed over many years of piloting and is now bearing fruits, inspiring many donors along the way. Below is a sample of a typical project timeline estimated to take place over a one year period. The dates vary from project to project and according to the timing of district planning and budgeting.
