Climate Diplomacy Week 2016
European Embassies around the globe celebrate the Climate Diplomacy Week from 12th till 18th of September for the third time. The Climate Diplomacy Week aims to raise awareness for climate change and the need for joint action. Over the past year, Germany, France and the UK have launched joint projects under the umbrella of Climate Diplomacy in over 30 countries.
The conclusion of the 21st Convention on Climate Change in Paris was a great success. For the first time there is a universal agreement to limit global warming. Nevertheless, there remains much to be done to now implement the agreement. Reducing carbon dioxide emissions as well as keeping the global temperature rise below 2° Celsius are essential in order to mitigate climate change. Supporting adaptation to and mitigation of climate change play a major role in Cambodia and are addressed by launched projects. Cambodia is especially vulnerable to impacts of climate change due to its geographical location and low development.

Intensifying Cambodian-German Cultural Exchange
On 28 August 2015 a memorandum of understanding was signed between the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts, represented by H.E. Secretary of State, Samraing Kamsan, and Kambodschnisch-Deutsche-Kulturgesellschaft eV. (KDKG e.V. = Cambodian-Germany Cultural Association), represented by its chairman, Mr Nico Mesterharm.
The project agreement aims at broadening the existing cooperation between Cambodia and Germany. KDKG e.V. comprises the activities carried out by META-House, Art+Foundation and German Classes Phnom Penh which all have already enabled cultural exchange for many years. Many of the projects carried out by this organization are co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany through Goethe Institute or the German Embassy.
The new MoU complements an agreement signed between KDKG e.V. with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports in 2014 which has already entailed a cooperation agreement between the Royal University of Cambodia and Rhein-Waal-University in Germany.
Germany wants to increase the percentage of its electricity supply that comes from solar, wind and other renewable energy sources to between 40 and 45 percent by 2025 and then to between 55 and 60 percent by 2035. By the same token, this should enable CO2 emissions to be reduced by 40 percent by 2020.
