According to the bank document, the project will rehabilitate about 360 kilometers (km) of rural roads in five provinces (Kampong Cham, Kratie, Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, and Tboung Khmum) to paved condition. The rehabilitated roads will provide poor rural provinces with a disaster and climate-resilient, safer, and cost-effective rural road network with all-year access to markets and other social services. The proposed RRIP III will continue to support sustainability of this rural road network through: (i) a rural road maintenance regime in the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD); and (ii) a community-based road safety program. These initiatives have already been established by MRD through earlier ADB-financed projects, RRIP and RRIP II. The project will also support an HIV/AIDS and human trafficking awareness and prevention program (HHTPP). The feasibility study of the proposed project was completed through the ongoing loan for RRIP II.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
