The project entitled Formulation of the National Adaptation Programme of Action to Climate Change (NAPA) aims to develop a realistically achievable country-driven programme of action and priority activities addressing the needs of Cambodia for adapting to the adverse effects of climate change (UNDP, 2003).Specifically, the project's goals include: the synthesis of available information on the adverse impacts of climate change, climate variability and adaptation to climate hazards in Cambodia; the identification and prioritisation of potential activities to adapt to current climate variability, climate extremes and climate change. The NAPA project is funded by the international donor community through its contributions to the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
