Project Description

The proposed project will support the government of Cambodia in improving urban services and enhancing climate resilience in participating towns in four towns in the Tonle Sap Basin. The project will support urban infrastructure investments, including drainage and flood protection, wastewater management and solid waste management, in the municipalities of Steung Sen, Serei Saophoan, Kampong Chhnang and Pursat. By enhancing drainage and flood protection, the project will improve climate resilience and adaption capacity in the four towns. The project will also improve climate resilient urban planning and disaster risk management and strengthen institutional capacity for sector coordination and managing public investments.

Component 1: Development of feasibility studies. The consultant will develop feasibility studies for selected subprojects under Output 1 and Output 2. The selection of Output 1 subprojects that would be developed to feasibility level will be confirmed as part of the prefeasibility study.

Component 2: Development of detailed design and bidding documents. The consultant will develop detailed design and bidding documents for selected subprojects under Output 1. Consultants will carry out all necessary surveys—including detailed topographical and soil surveys, field verification, studies, collection of data, and analyses needed to prepare the detailed engineering designs and contract documents for the subprojects. The consultants will prepare detailed designs and cost estimates—accurate to plus or minus five percent—and
prepare bidding documents in line with the procurement plan. The selection of Output 1 subprojects that would be developed to detailed design level will be confirmed as part of the pre-feasibility study, and will include those sub projects which are assessed as being the highest priority investments across the four towns.

Component 3: Capacity building program. The consultant will develop a capacity building program to be adopted and implemented under Output 3 of the project. The purpose of the program will be to train staff for the effective and efficient implementation of the project, management of urban services, operations and maintenance of the project facilities, and strengthening monitoring, reporting and evaluation of the project. Potential areas covered by the capacity building program could include procurement, financial management, customer relations,
social and environmental safeguards, gender mainstreaming, environmental management, operations and maintenance of project facilities, monitoring, reporting and evaluation, solid waste management, wastewater treatment, and drainage operations. The program will be coordinated by the national institutional specialist and training coordinator, with all team members serving as resource persons in their relevant areas of expertise for development of the program.

Component 4: Consolidated proposal and procurement plan. The consultant will consolidate and package all consultancy outputs to produce a cohesive and comprehensive project proposal, including a procurement plan and detailed cost tables. This proposal would include consolidated technical, economic and financial, governance, poverty and social (including gender), safeguards, and risk assessments, covering all outputs of the proposed Mproject.
