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 strengthen sector coordination, capacity for project implementation, and operations and maintenance in the four towns.
The proposed project will build on ADB's programmatic, sequential engagement in Cambodia's urban sector and in the Tonle Sap basin. The 2005 Tonle Sap Basin Strategy highlighted the importance of the basin from an ecological, environmental and poverty perspective, while the 2012 Urban Sector Assessment, Strategy and Road Map for Cambodia highlighted sustainable urban development in the Tonle Sap as one of the ADB's three priority areas moving forward. , The Tonle Sap Urban Development Strategic Framework (2014-2030) identified and prioritized the urgent urban infrastructure needs for the six key towns in the Tonle Sap basin. The first Tonle Sap Integrated Urban Environmental Management Project, approved in 2015 and currently under implementation, is focusing on a subset of priority investments in the two top-ranked towns, namely Kampong Chnnang and Pursat.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
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.
