Project Description
According to bank documents, the TA is aligned with ADB’s Strategy 2020; the Southeast Asia Department’s Climate Change Implementation Plan; and various sector assessments, strategies, and road maps prepared as background to the new country partnership strategy, 2014–2018. The TA supports ADB’s Cambodia country partnership strategy, 2011–2013, which aims to reduce poverty and promote inclusive growth with an integrated approach to rural development, targeting the areas where most poor reside. At the same time, it will also be consistent with social protection measures, community-based development, and public sector capacity development. The impact will be improved national capacity to manage disaster risks in Cambodia. The target will be a 15% reduction in losses to life and livelihood from the 2013 baseline (5-year average from 2009 to 2013) in the number of households affected by and the economic losses incurred from floods. Based on the documents, the project's risk categorization is low.
