On the eve of the UN Climate Talks in Paris (COP 21), several hundred people are expected to attend “Together for Climate”, a rally coordinated by the Cambodia Climate Change Network (CCCN), on Sunday at the Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Centre at Royal University of Phnom Penh.

The three-hour demonstration, scheduled to begin at 3pm, marks the first time Cambodians have joined in the annual pre-COP “people’s climate marches”, which take place worldwide to draw attention to climate negotiations.

“This is for Cambodians to advocate for climate change in public,” said CCCN coordinator Chhorm Chhun, adding that the government had denied organisers’ wish was for a more visible location, such as near the Royal Palace.
