Schools as platforms for climate action (Cambodia)

Children in Cambodia
UNICEF / 2021 / Seng


Cambodia is ranked the 46th most vulnerable country on the Children’s Climate Risk Index, and as a result, the country is prioritising the integration of climate change into its Education Strategic Plan and SDG4 Roadmap for Education. UNICEF Cambodia is supporting the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport in engaging adolescents in climate action through a school-based Local Life Skill Education programme. The programme encourages students, parents, local experts and communities to work together to identify and solve local problems related to climate change and environmental issues.
