Project Description

According to ADB website, the Project is aligned with (i) phase 3 of the government's rectangular strategy for growth, employment, equity, and efficiency; (ii) Cambodia's NSDP for 2014 2018; and (iii) Government plans to facilitate private sector partnerships, strengthen the management of publicly owned waterworks, and integrate urban water supply with urban environmental management.

The project supports ADB's Water Operational Plan, 2011 2020 to improve the efficiency of water services. The PPTA will prepare a strategy and road map for Cambodia's urban water and sanitation sector. It also aligns with two of the three pillars of ADB's country partnership strategy for Cambodia, namely pillar 1 to strengthen rural, urban, and regional linkages through investments in water supply and sanitation infrastructure and services; and pillar 3 to support public sector management by helping to decentralize and expand public financial management capacity for the water supply and sanitation sector.
