Climate risk assessment for subnational adaptation and establishment of a local climate information system for climate change adaptation (LISA) in CambodiaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:Implementation
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.

Agricultural production accounts for 12,9% of Indonesia’s growth domestic product and 43,3% of total employment. However, Indonesia’s agriculture has faced some challenges such as reduction of arable land and climate change on one hand, and the fast-growing population on the other hand. As an archipelagic country, Indonesia has a high risk resulting from the impacts of climate change.
Strengthening safe drinking water supply in rural Myanmar based on the gravity-driven membrane (GDM) technologyType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:
Myanmar has substantial water resources; however, the resources are spatially and temporally unevenly distributed. Therefore, water‐related problems caused by different seasonal climate patterns vary depending on the geographic location. ‘Water resource management’ has been targeted as the main sector of concern for climate change adaptation in Myanmar. It was selected as the second priority level sector in the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA).
Application of the gravity-driven membrane (GDM) technology for supplying sustainable drinking water to rural communitiesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationSectors:
Cambodia has limited access to high water quality and hygiene. Although there has been an improvement in urban areas, most rural areas still have difficulties in water and sanitation access. Sufficient supply of safe water (including drink water) is crucial for rural people and would enable them to adapt to climate change, particularly in the prolonged drought situation that have occurred in Cambodia.
Development of energy audit and reporting guidelines for calculation of the emission factors for fossil fuel power plantsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:Approach:
In 2014, the energy sector contributed 53.4% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Viet Nam. The energy sector in general and power generation in particular plays an important role for achieving the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

Cambodia is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Although the Government has tried the utmost effort to install and contract electricity line rural areas, there is still no still access to the national grid. To meet the objectives of the Government to access to electricity consumption, off-grid (solar, battery, kerosene lamp) has been introduced, especially in the remote areas.
Feasibility study for Carbon Mineralization by using CO2 issued from coal power plant for recycling ash slag in Cao Ngan coal power plantType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Currently, there exist 20 coal-fired power plants in operation with a total capacity of nearly 14,500 MW, which generate about 15.7 million tons of coal slag per year, of which coal ash accounts for 75%. It is predicted that by the year 2020, there will be 43 factories, which will generate more than 30 million tons of coal slag per year. At present, there are no suitable solutions for this huge amount of slag.
