Project Description

According to the bank document, the proposed project's objective is "to increase access to piped water supply and improved sanitation services and strengthen the operational performance of service providers in selected towns or areas, and to provide immediate and effective response in case of an eligible crisis or emergency."

The proposed project has two major components, (i) to support provincial water supply in selected towns and communes, (ii) to support provincial sanitation improvement in Siem Reap City and other areas. A third additional Contingent Emergency Response com ponent has been provisioned for the Bank to provide emergency support in the event of a natural disaster, emergency and/or catastrophic event. Each of the major component is in turn subdivided into an infrastructure investment subcomponent and an associated institutional strengthening, policy and project implementation subcomponent.
