The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance project:
Climate risk assessment for subnational adaptation and establishment of a local climate information system for climate change adaptation (LISA) in Cambodia
Deadline to express the interest: 13 August, 2021
Cambodia is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change and has difficulties in implementing the country’s climate change response due to a lack of available quality-assured information and knowledge on climate change in the country. Significant gaps still remain in creating the conditions for science-based climate-informed decision making, in particular related to the production, access and use of climate information at local levels.
As highlighted in its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), Cambodia’s vulnerability is characterised by frequent floods and irregular rainfall, coupled with an agrarian-based economy, limited human and financial resources, insufficient physical infrastructure, and limited access to technologies.
The CTCN is seeking experts to design the web-based local information system that can effectively support climate-informed decision making processes at the sub-national (municipality) level, responding to the stakeholders’ needs identified.
A capacity needs assessment and capacity building program will be also developed to ensure a locally-led, effective operation and progressive enhancement, and to maximize utilization of the system by local government authorities and other key stakeholders. Integration of the local climate information/data into the national database and its use for national decision making on climate change response will contribute to enhancing climate resilience in Cambodia.
