Governance and planning
Good governance and planning can enable a faster and more efficient transition to low-carbon societies and countries’ improved climate mitigation and adaptation capacities. The CTCN provides technical assistance to developing countries with a view to strengthen climate planning. Approaches such as planning adaptation activities together with communities, developing Environmental Information System’s that facilitate better basis for decision-making, and identifying countries’ technology needs are useful enablers. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.
Governance and planning
Application of the gravity-driven membrane (GDM) technology for supplying sustainable drinking water to rural communitiesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ReviewCountries:Objective:Sectors:
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.

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.

Globally, the number of motorized vehicles is estimated to reach between 2 and 3 billion vehicles by 2050 with a significant number located in developing countries like Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe's motor vehicle fleet has been growing at a fast rate especially after the year 1990. The Zimbabwe Climate Change Response Strategy further identified that the nation's transport sector consumes over 1 billion liters of diesel and over 730 million liters of petrol annually. Part of the energy emissions come from the use of petroleum products in the transport sector.

The Kyrgyz Republic is a land locked and lower-middle-income country of 6,3 million population endowed with natural resources including minerals, glaciers, arable land, forestry and pastures. The country is the third most vulnerable to climate change impacts in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, due to its dependency on and sensitivity of agricultural systems.
