According to ADB website, the proposed Uplands Irrigation and Water Resources Management Sector Project will enhance agricultural and rural economic productivity through increased efficiency of irrigation systems and improved management of water resources in uplands, areas away from the Tonle Sap lake, in Prey Veng, Kampong Thom and Battambang provinces. It shall address agriculture productivity constraints such as (i) low irrigation efficiency and water productivity, (ii) seasonal variations in water availability, (iii) inadequate operation and maintenance, and (iv) weak water resources management.
Project impact will be increased farm incomes and outcome will be enhanced water and agricultural productivity. The outputs will be (i) enhanced efficiency and climate resilience of irrigation systems, (ii) improved water resource management, and (iii) efficient and effective project implementation.

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
