Centre for Natural Resources and Environment

The Centre for Natural Resources and Environment (CNRE) conducts policy-oriented and academic researches, focusing on climate change, resource governance, energy, and environmental sustainability. The centre generates evidence-based knowledge through rigorous researches using various methods including integrated modelling techniques, social-ecological system analyses, economic experiments, surveys and in-depth qualitative analysis. The research findings are shared widely among local and international partners, practitioners, and policy makers through publications, policy dialogues, and dissemination workshops. Our researches provide reliable information and scientific evidence for decision makers to make relevant policies, especially contributing to the Royal Government of Cambodia’s rectangle strategies on Angle 4: inclusive sustainable development, sustainable management of natural resources and culture, ensuring environmental sustainability, and primitive response to climate change.

Cambodia has been identified as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change, given the predicted changes in temperature and precipitation, the share of labor in agriculture, and the country’s low adaptive capacity due to widespread poverty. In this study, we use climate data from four general circulation models (GCMs) to evaluate the impact of climate change on agriculture in Cambodia b...
