Cambodia is committed to taking part in the solving of climate change issues based on its available capacity and resources, Prime Minister Hun Sen said on Oct. 7.
Speaking during the Climate Vulnerable Forum Leaders’ Event, which was held via video conference on the margin of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, Hun Sen said that climate change is a cross-cutting issue that needs to be addressed through a comprehensive policy balancing social, economic and environmental aspects. Cambodia is highly committed, has the political will to contribute to the global efforts to address climate change, he said.
“In this context, although we need to shift policy and resource priorities to combat COVID19, we should all work hard to prioritize and ensure continuity of the implementation of climate change mitigation measures, which is a core agenda for our sustainable socio-economic development,” he said. “Cambodia has less greenhouse gas emissions: We would like to demonstrate our commitment to combat climate change according to our capacity and available resources.”
