2 Outline SPCR in Brief TA Rationale TA Objectives TA Components and Activities Implementation Arrangements Key Issues for Discussion

3 Climate Investment Funds Overview of Structure and Governance Partnership Forum Clean Technology Fund (CTF) Trust Fund Committee with equal representation of donors and recipients Observers from relevant organizations (GEF, UN) US$4.5 billion Forest Investment Program (0.6 billion) Sub-Committee Strategic Climate Fund (SCF) Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (1 billion) Sub-Committee SREP (Scaling up Renewable Energy Program) (0.3 billion) Sub-Committee Trust Fund Committee Observers US$2.0 billion

4 SPCR Preparation Process Inclusive & consultative 06/2009 – 05/ joint missions 2 technical missions > 50 consultation meetings > 200 comments

5 National Consultation Meeting on Preparation of Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) for Cambodia Cambodiana Hotel, March 2011

6 Consultations with Civil Society Organizations May 2011 Commune-level Consultations October 2009

7 Key Features of Cambodia’s SPCR Prioritization based on needs and capacities Strong linkages to NAPA priorities Synergies with disaster risk reduction efforts High potential for leveraging MDB funds Effective linkages to Phase 1 PPCR activities More effective cross-sectoral coordination Strong stakeholder engagement & empowerment ◦ Gender mainstreaming ◦ Civil society support mechanism ◦ Private sector participation Knowledge management and learning platform Benefits to the much larger Greater Mekong Sub-region Accelerated poverty reduction efforts Consistency with PPCR Results Framework

8 .. Soft Interventions (GRANT)  Adaptation frameworks  Vulnerability and adaptation Assessments  Community-based disaster risk reduction and adaptation  Ecosystem-based adaptation  Risk sharing schemes Hard Interventions (CONCESSIONAL CREDIT)  Climate-resilient irrigation infrastructure, roads, post- harvest and sanitation facilities  Hydro-meteorological monitoring, data collection and early warning systems  Strengthened river banks & flood protection structures Capacity Strengthening (GRANT)  Cross-sectoral coordination & technical backstopping  Knowledge management platform  CSO support, NAPA Support, gender equity and private sector  Coordination with development partners SPCR Overview

11 Project Provinces/ Sites PPCR RequestExpected co-financing ($ Million) Grant (50 M) Credit (36 M) Total (86 M) 5. Climate proofing of roads Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, Kampong Chhnang and Kampong Speu Climate proofing of infrastructure in the Southern Economic Corridor Poipet, Battambang, Neak Leung and Bavet ( for GMS) 7. Flood-resilient infrastructure development Sisophon, Siem Reap, Kampong Thom, Battambang Pursat, Kampong Cham Technical Assistance National TBD SPCR Endorsed Financing & Co-Financing

12 TA Rationale: Key Challenges for Enhancing Climate Resilience in Cambodia Limited information on local impacts Low awareness at various levels of governance Limited institutional and technical capacities to mainstream adaptation into development planning Weak cross-sectoral coordination Lack of appropriate adaptation technologies Absence of credible disaster response and forecasting mechanisms Inadequate funding

13 TA Objectives To strengthen institutional capacity to coordinate SPCR and provide technical support To conduct feasibility studies for selected NAPA projects To provide support to community-based adaptation activities in multiple sectors To develop and disseminate adaptation knowledge toolkits and products Outcome: Sustained institutional and technical capacity in Cambodia to integrate adaptation concerns into development

14 ComponentSelected activitiesBudget SPCR Coordination and Capacity Strengthening PPCR coordinating and technical backstopping unit Capacity building needs assessment Training events and workshops Guidebooks, and reports on sectoral mainstreaming Technical support for integrating adaptation concerns $3 Million Civil Society Support Mechanism Small grant facility (30-50 grants) to NGOs and CSOs operating in Cambodia to implement adaptation activities Technical support for mainstreaming adaptation in CSO and NGO operations $2 Million NAPA Feasibility Support NAPA feasibility studies completed for 3 sectors (e.g., water, agriculture and human health) At least 2 NAPA projects identified for support from international adaptation funds $1 Million Knowledge Management Information from 7 SPCR projects compiled, managed and disseminated New curriculum for adaptation and DRR developed for secondary and tertiary education 25 new articles on adaptation and DRR published and posted in Cambodian and global web portals $1 Million

15 Implementation Arrangements Duration: 5 years ( ) Budget: $7million Executing Agency: MOE Implementing agencies: All ministries concerned with SPCR One consulting firm, one NGO/firm and independent consultants Government ownership and leadership

16 Key Issues for Discussion Effective coordination of SPCR investments ◦ Inter and Intra-ministerial; ◦ Multi-stakeholder involvement (civil society, gender-conscious approaches; private sector) Sustainable civil society support mechanism Modalities of NAPA support facility Reliable approaches for adaptation knowledge management Monitoring and Evaluation – PPCR Results Frameworks for adaptation
