National Environmental Strategy and Action Plan - Final Meeting
Phnom Penh, Cambodia 5th December 2016
Key stakeholders overseeing Cambodia’s National Environmental Strategy and Action Plan (NESAP) met to review the latest draft in preparation for its submittal to the government for approval.
Since the last NESAP meeting in August, the drafting team assessed the natural resource and environment activities in Cambodia - both current and planned - for development organizations and government agencies and analyzed how these match with the NESAP’s strategic objectives. This information was then added to the NESAP draft as an Annex.
Attendees at the meeting included representatives from 12 development organizations; including ADB, the World Bank and the European Union; as well as the NESAP Inter-Ministerial Task Force that comprises senior officials from 15 ministries.
The final draft Khmer version of the NESAP is expected to be completed in January and then the document will be submitted for approval to the National Council for Sustainable Development followed by the Council of Ministers.
