dc.description.abstract This policy brief discusses the readiness of Khemarak Phumin city in Koh Kong province (Cambodia) to cope with impacts of climate change and natural disasters. It provides policy recommendations derived from study findings. Climate vulnerability is due to the absence of an early warning system, the lack of a responsible specialized agency at the city level, no designated evacuation route or safe areas during emergencies, and no reserve emergency fund. These are critical mechanisms in which to invest. Cambodia is prone to both natural and human-made disasters such as flooding, droughts, storms, fire, riverbank collapses, and pest epidemics. en
