Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister calls for further implementing the principle of ‘Common but Differentiated Responsibilities’
Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Hor Namhong, said that climate change is having devastating effects on developing countries as they mostly rely on agriculture and also suffer from typhoons, floods and draughts.
He underscored the need to further implement the UN principle of ‘Common but Differentiated Responsibilities’, because industrialised counties emit the largest amount of greenhouse gas, while developing countries become the main victims of climate change.
