On Friday, November 7 2012, the Swedish Ambassador to Thailand, Klas Molin, signed on behalf of the Government of Sweden a co-financing agreement of 8.3 million US Dollars for a second phase of the Core Environment Program and Biodiversity Conservation Corridors Initiative (CEP-BCI), an Asian Development Bank (ADB) administered program helping the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) achieve environmentally-friendly economic growth.

Sweden’s latest commitment follows the 11 million US dollars it contributed to the 2006-2012 pilot phase of the CEP-BCI.

The program is helping GMS countries shift towards green economies, including support for biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation and resilience.
