Kompong Cham Students discuss Climate Change

February 12, 2010   - Kampong Cham Students Discuss the Effects of Climate Change in Cambodia - American Corner, the Kampong Cham.    On February 12, three teams of students presented the results of an essay contest on climate change sponsored by the American Corner at the Kampong Cham University of Management and Economics.  U.S. Embassy Environmental Officer Juhani Platt and Public Affairs Staff Member Po Eng served as judges for the competition in which teams discussed such issues as greenhouse gas emissions, climate change adaptation, and mitigation solutions for Cambodia. The teams included two groups from a local high school and a third from the Regional Teaching Training Center. All three teams demonstrated impressive research and presentation skills to the panel. Team Three (Ms. Hy Dalin, Mr. Sreng Pisey, and Ms. Chan Sophalngean) from Preah Sihanouk High School was awarded the 1st place prize and a certificate of participation from the U.S. Embassy for their enthusiastic presentation that highlighted many important ways that Cambodians, Americans, and all people can help to mitigate climate change.  The team did an outstanding job connecting the global issue of climate change to local environmental issues that face Cambodia today.    The Embassy congratulates all the teams for their fantastic work and participation in the contest.
