CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

Cambodia is a low emitter of greenhouse gases, and highly vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. Its dependency on the mighty Mekong river for the vast majority of its agricultural output (mainly rice and fish) threaten its ecological stability. 

Cambodia is a typical monsoon country, with a dry and a wet season, creating a rich seasonal tropical rainforest. It is also the country of the Cardamone mountains, which host the thriving ecosystems formed by dry tropical forests. Elephants, panthers and tigers roam the lands of Cambodia, but their habitat is disappearing and being carved up by farmers, loggers and urban land-use change. 

At the heart of the country lies Tonlé Sap, Southeast Asia’s largest freshwater lake (actually a prolongation of the Mekong river). The lake practically dries out and then floods a vast portion of central Cambodia during and after the monsoon rains. This shifting wetland habitat is instrumental for the world’s conservation objectives and Cambodia’s social and economic fabric.

Cambodia is a paradoxical state when it comes to conservation. On the one hand, 40% of its territory is under environmental or cultural protection, but on the other, it is the country with the highest deforestation rate in the region. In 50 years, Cambodia’s primary forest went from 70% to just 3% in 2007 (third highest level of forest cover loss in the world after Vietnam and Nigeria). Deforestation, alongside poaching, fishing, illegal wildlife trade and habitat destruction are the key reasons for many of the wide variety of species in Cambodia to be considered endangered. Prominent examples include Eld's deer, wild tigers, wild water buffaloes and hog deer, among many others.

That is why the Kingdom’s Paris Agreement contributions focus on the reduction of this plague and the restoration of its woodlands, so critical to the country’s wildlife, livelihood and cultural makeup. 

Cambodia is growing fast, and its resources are rapidly dwindling. There are numerous causes for the destruction of this precious nature. The state has committed to protecting its natural assets, from the Mekong to the high plateaus of the Cardamom mountains. Grassroot initiatives monitor, apply and reinforce climate action. Maybe today is the day to complete the circle with a donation to one of our featured Cambodian projects?

DATA INSIGHTS

According to the World Bank classification, Cambodia is a lower-middle-income country. To understand Cambodia’s position in the fight against climate change, it is useful to observe its history of carbon emissions and exposure to climate risk. The following plots provide an overview of Cambodia’s historic greenhouse gas emissions in perspective with global emission levels, as well as the country’s relative vulnerability and preparedness to climate change.
