The National Green Growth Roadmap
Cambodia, 2009by: Cambodia
The National Green Growth Roadmap puts forward an implementation plan of the national and local sustainable development strategy for all policy areas in the Kingdom of Cambodia. It provides a supporting framework for environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive development and growth in Cambodia that aims to strengthen environmental cooperation concerning national and international environmental policy through the sharing of ideas and experiences whilst contributing towards the Millennium Development Goals and National Sustainable Development Objectives.
The strategy builds on ESCAP’s definition of green growth that emphasises ecologically sustainable economic progress to foster low‐carbon, socially inclusive development. To this end, the roadmap proposes potential paths for short, medium and long‐term implementation of green growth in Cambodia that will help the country to improve resilience and decrease vulnerability to climate change. The strategy is based largely around ESCAP’s holistic Green Growth Approach which states that the economy, the environment and society are not mutually exclusive but rather interdependent, deeply intertwined and integral components of one another.
