The WEPA Action Program in Cambodia is implementing following specific activities:
Development of methodologies to identify major sources and loads of pollutants
A detail case study is conducted to develop the methodologies to identify pollution sources and loads. The case study is conducted in Chhnok Tru village, located in Kampong Chhnang Province (Figure 1) and surrounding area. Intensive field survey is conducted to collect the information and data of pollution sources and the pollutants based on the on-site inspection
Development of a guidebook for sub-national environmental officers
The methodologies are elaborated in a guidebook for sub-national level environment officers. In order to develop the guidebook, the draft methodologies are consulted in a stakeholder consultation meeting to receive feedbacks of key stakeholders. Also, necessary counter measures for management of water environment in TSL are discussed. The outcomes of stakeholder meeting are documented in the guidebook.
Capacity building training for national and sub-national level environment officers
Capacity building training on the guidebook is organized for both sub-national and national officers. The training consists of both technical methodologies of pollution source and loads measurement and guidelines on the policy measures.
