Project Description

According to the GCF document, the project aims to reduce climate change vulnerability and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of four agricultural value chains in Cambodia, enhance resilience and productivity of target crops, and increase agricultural competitiveness and household incomes in the project areas. The project will operate in four vulnerable provinces, which have a history of agricultural losses due to extreme climate events and where main transport corridors are already available to link production to markets, namely Kampong Cham and Tbong Khmum provincesalong the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) southern corrid or, and Kampot and Takeo provinces along the south- coastal corridor

 
The project aims to enhance infrastructure resilience to climate change and “last mile” connectivity, enabling transformation of transport corridors into economic corridors. The project is expected to start on 1 July 2018 and end 30 June 2024.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies.  The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website.  More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at irm@gcfund.org.
