The Ministry of Environment has approved a draft "green growth roadmap" meant to improve the country's infrastructure in an environmentally friendly way. Kang Samnuon, a secretary of state at the ministry, said Monday that the ministry, in partnership with the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, had completed a training programme for community educators as part of the project.

Phnom Penh Deputy Governor Mann Chhoeun said that rubbish collection and recycling would be a major focus in the city.
