    Publication
    Publication date:

    The 193 individual country profiles capture the status and progress of all UN Member States, and the 80+ indicators include a wealth of information on child, adolescent and adult anthropometry and nutritional status, in addition to intervention coverage, food supply, economics, and demography. This tool is particularly useful for nutrition champions at the country-level, as it presents a wide range of evidence needed to assess country progress in improving nutrition and nutrition-related outcomes.

  • Cambodian agriculture: Adaptation to climate change impact

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    Cambodia has been identified as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. This International Food and Policy Institute discussion paper utilises crop models and village surveys to provide an overview of Cambodian agriculture's adaptation to climate change impacts. Modelling software evaluated yields for eight crops to a scale of 10km-squares, with potential gains from adjusted fertiliser use examined. The survey consisted of 45 communes using focus group discussions, with question asked regarding fertiliser, irrigation, seeds, tillage, and responses to climatic disasters.

  • PALSAR 50 m Mosaic Data Based National Level Biomass Estimation in Cambodia for Implementation of REDD + Mechanism

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    According to this study, tropical countries such as Cambodia require information about forest biomass to successfully implement climate change mitigation mechanism related to Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+). This study investigated the potential of Phased Array-type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar Fine Beam Dual (PALSAR FBD) 50-m mosaic data to estimate Above Ground Biomass (AGB) in Cambodia. AGB was estimated using a bottom-up approach based on field measured biomass and backscattering (sigma(o)) properties of PALSAR data.

    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This paper argues that climate change adaptation in the health sector requires decisions across sectors, levels of government, and organisations. The study uses social network research to identify key organisational players engaged in developing health-related adaptation activities in Cambodia. It finds that strong partnerships are reported as developing across sectors and different types of organisations in relation to the health risks from climate change.
