Cambodia on December 30 submitted its egy (LTS4CN) to the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) , according to the Ministry of Environment.
The ministry said that the strategy aimed to provide a roadmap based on comprehensive analysis and scenarios related to key economic sectors as well as priority mitigation activities to achieve future carbon-neutral development. The strategy included an analysis of the balance between greenhouse gas reduction, economic growth, social justice and climate resilience.
In a press release on December 31, the ministry stated that the submission of the strategy was in line with the commitment that Prime Minister Hun Sen made at the UN Climate Summit 2020 to be implemented by the end of the year 2021. The development of the strategy was an important step for Cambodia as a country that supports multilateral activities in climate change to demonstrate leadership through practical implementation of climate action.
Cambodia is one of just 49 UNFCCC Parties that have submitted this strategy to the UNFCCC Secretariat to date.
