Results of ADB-supported Operations: Cambodia

As Cambodia's largest multilateral development partner, the ADB has supported the country's government in its effort to rebuild and develop the country after the 1991 Paris Peace Agreement. Since then, the pace of economic growth and poverty reduction has been remarkable.

ADB's efforts have focused on the development of physical and social infrastructure, public sector management, private sector and finance sector development, and natural resource management and
conservation.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Cambodia and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
