Cambodian journalists alerted on climate change
Average Cambodians associated climate change with deforestation, disease and increasing temperature, whereas Cambodian NGO workers saw it as global increase in carbon dioxide emissions and deforestation, said BBC World Trust research officer.
Mr. Trak Peaseth shared this message at a UNESCO climate change training to local journalists in Cambodia. He also emphasized the need for free and easy access to information regarding climate change in Cambodia.
A Climate Change Training Project funded by UNESCO and implemented by the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM) was recently held in Phnom Penh including a field trip to provide direct experience on climate change in Koh Kong organized by the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
