On June 13th, a group of young Cambodians sat wide-eyed listening to a presentation that opened their mind to that phenomenon that EVERYBODY in the world is talking about – climate change.
More than 20 members of Politikoffee, a youth organization that meet up once a week – over coffee (and not alcohol as is common among many Cambodian youth!) – to discuss and debate on pertinent political issues affecting Cambodian society, gathered and diverged for once from their usual politics talks, and talked about the earth’s climate and how its warming is affecting – and could further affect – humanity.

Along with the global recognition of the dire consequences of climate change came the availability of climate funds to support adaptation, mitigation and forest conservation measures in vulnerable developing countries.
Identified as one of the particularly vulnerable countries to the effects of climate change, Cambodia currently benefits from global climate finance.
To shed light to some of the questions surrounding climate finance, GERES will be holding a Roundtable Discussion on Climate Finance for Development on 25th November 2014, 15.00-16.00HH, at The Quay Boutique Hotel along Sisowath Quay.
