Stage of the project cycle. Stages vary by development bank and can include: pending, approval, implementation, and closed or completed.
Bank Risk Rating
Environmental and social categorization assessed by the development bank as a measure of the planned project’s environmental and social impacts. A higher risk rating may require more due diligence to limit or avoid harm to people and the environment. For example, "A" or "B" are risk categories where "A" represents the highest amount of risk. Results will include projects that specifically recorded a rating, all other projects are marked ‘U’ for "Undisclosed."

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.

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.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

Ministry of Public Works and Transport

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

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:
