Cambodia’s National Environment Strategy English Version Released

The final English version of Cambodia’s new National Environment Strategy and Action Plan (NESAP) is now available online.

The NESAP identifies priority policy tools and financing options for sustainable natural resource management and environmental protection. It will guide government ministries, private sector, civil society, and development organizations to mainstream environmental considerations into development policies, plans, and investments. The NESAP covers 2015–2023 to align with the country’s Rectangular Strategy and National Strategic Development Plan. It will complement the new National Environmental Code, which focuses on establishing a stronger legal framework and is currently in draft form.

The GMS Core Environment Program led international support to develop the NESAP.
