Cambodia’s Long-Term Strategy for Carbon Neutrality (LTS4CN) will be officially launched at the Ministry of Environment on Feb. 11, along with a press conference and a panel discussion.
H.E. Say Samal, Chair of the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD) and Minister of Environment will preside over the launching ceremony.
According to the ministry, the LTS4CN report was approved and submitted to the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on Dec. 30, 2021. This submission was in line with the commitment made by Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister, during the 2020 United Nations Climate Ambition Summit, to submit a long-term strategy by the end of 2021.
The strategy is a highly significant step for Cambodia, a strong supporter of multilateral action on climate change, to reach the carbon neutrality by 2050 following the principle of “common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities” under the UNFCCC.
