Cofinancing

Cofinancing operations enable ADB’s financing partners, governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and commercial organizations to participate in financing ADB projects. The additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, and commercial financing such as B loans, risk transfer arrangements, parallel loans, and cofinancing for transactions under ADB’s Trade Finance Program.

By the end of 2013, cumulative direct value-added official cofinancing for Cambodia amounted to $331.8 million for 34 investment projects and $44.9 million for 52 technical assistance projects.

In 2013, Cambodia received $5 million loan cofinancing and $4.5 million grant cofinancing from the Strategic Climate Fund and $14.6 million grant cofinancing from the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program for the Climate-Resilient Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program. The Government of Australia provided $6.1 million grant cofinancing to Rural Energy Project.
