UNCDF: “Least Developed Countries are some of the most vulnerable to climate change”

Siem Reap, 6 November 2015: “Least Developed Countries are some of the most vulnerable to climate change,” said Judith Karl, UNCDF Executive Secretary, in her remark on 2th November on the occasion of the Strengthening Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Change through Local Government Systems: Lesson Learned from the Local Adaptive Living (LoCAL) Facility, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. “They are the least able to recover from climate stresses; have lower capacity to adapt than other developing countries; and their economic growth is highly dependent on climate-sensitive sectors, such as agriculture.”
