Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed 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.

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.
