Executive
Plan
Passed in 2020
The Ministry Mines and Energy (MME) has developed the Climate Change Action Plan for 2016-2018 following the guidance of the Council of Ministers and with support from the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD) and technical and financial support from Cambodia Climate Change Alliance (CCCA). 

The plan defines concret actions and resources needed for the implementation of the MME's responso to climate change providing direction on a number of issues which are critical to the sectors' development, including climate proofing of future energy infrastructure, decoupling economic growth and sectors' future development from GHG emissions. 

The plan establishes the following priorities: 1) to identify environmental friendly technology in the extraction of metallic mineral from ore; 2) to formulate and analyse the emission base line with the implementation of adaptation and mitigation measures in the energy and mines sectors; 3) to encourage effective use of energy with minimal impact on the environment; 4) to undertake climate change vulnerability assessment of the energy infrastructures with adaptation measures; 5) to increase institutional capacity for adaptation and mitigation response; 6) to develop a legal and regulatory framework for the energy sector; 7) to strengthen capacity to mitigate environmental impacts; 8) to ensure reliability of electricity supply; 9) to promote the exploration of energy sources (hydropower, natural gas and coal for the electricity generation); 10) to promote regional energy trade through bi-and multi-lateral cooperation.
