SEOUL, Republic of Korea, July 30, 2020 – The Cambodian Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, H.E Long Dimanche, officially held a meeting with the President and Chair of the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), Mr. Ban Ki-moon, to present a letter from the Cambodian Prime Minister, Samdech Hun Sen, regarding integrating green growth into Cambodia’s COVID-19 recovery and expressed gratitude for GGGI’s support. The meeting also provided an opportunity to discuss GGGI’s program in Cambodia and the waste-to-energy project that seeks to provide a sustainable waste management solution at Dangkor landfill in Phnom Penh.
During the meeting, Mr. Ban Ki-moon expressed his gratitude for the ongoing cooperation and support of the Royal Government of Cambodia. GGGI began its engagement with the Government in 2011 and the in-country office now runs a series of projects supporting waste management, sanitation, clean energy, greening garment manufacturing and sustainable transport across eight cities in Cambodia.
H.E. Long Dimanche expressed interest in GGGI’s waste-to-energy project that aims to establish a model for refuse-derived-fuel (RDF) to be produced from municipal waste. The project supports Government counterparts in assessing the technical and financial feasibility of an RDF plant at Phnom Penh’s Dangkor landfill. The project also addresses an existing demand for fuel from Cambodia’s cement kilns, offering a sustainable alternative to coal. Further cooperation between the Royal Government of Cambodia and GGGI will enable the project to progress.
