It's Time to Move Towards Environmental Sustainability

June 5th marks the annual World Environment Day, a time to reflect on the importance of protecting the environment. In September 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), seven of which are environmental. These include promoting sustainable use of natural resources, combating climate change and building sustainable cities. Achieving each of these goals is crucial for societies for shared and sustainable prosperity. This is the case for Cambodia too. Development must go hand in hand with environmental protection. In the Cambodian context, this point relates to a series of particular environmental challenges which require urgent attention and actions.
