Cambodia on March 1 approved a national policy and strategic plan for
green growth in the 2013-2030 period, aiming at developing the economy
with consideration for environment and natural resources sustainability.

They were adopted during a weekly cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Hun Sen.

The national policy targets a balance between economic development and
environmental protection, culture preservation, social stability and
sustainable consumption of natural resources to improve people’s living
conditions and welfare, said the press release after the meeting.

Meanwhile, the 2013-2030 green growth plan aims at developing a green
economy by the effective use of natural resources, environmental
sustainability, green jobs, green technologies, green finance, green
credit, and green investment.

Earlier, Cambodia
had already adopted several legal instruments to promote the green
growth, including the roadmap for green growth, the memorandum of
understanding on green growth cooperation between Cambodia and the
Republic of Korea’s Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and the
establishment of the National Council of Green Growth.-VNA
