Dialogue on Empowering Women for Climate Resilience in Cambodia

On March 26, CDRI hosted a dialogue on Empowering Women for Climate Resilience in Cambodia.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day this month, it is crucial to recognise the pivotal role that women play in climate adaptation and mitigation efforts.

During this engaging discussion, our panelists shared innovative initiatives and practical mechanisms aimed at enhancing women's resilience in the face of climate change.

Here are some key highlights:

  1. Introducing Smart Agricultural Technologies and Providing Vocational Training: These measures aim to reduce the vulnerability of women to climate change impacts.
  2. Addressing Limited Access to Financial Resources: Women, who often have limited access to financial resources, are disproportionately affected by climate change.
  3. Capacity Building and Networking: Efforts to promote women's participation in economic activities through capacity building and networking.
  4. Health Sector Consideration: Women experience heat stress due to rising temperatures, impacting their mental health. Additionally, water-borne diseases resulting from climate disasters (such as flooding) pose a significant risk. To tackle these challenges, policies, and strategies such as the Pentagonal Strategy Phase 1, Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan, and sectoral adaptation plans have been put in place.

CDRI would like to express our deep appreciation to our panelists and moderator for sharing their knowledge and experiences on this topic. We extend heartfelt thanks to all participants for their active engagement. As we continue our journey toward a climate-resilient future, we eagerly anticipate your presence in our upcoming monthly research seminar.
