Type: Evaluation Reports
Evaluation; Environment; Poverty
Series: Validations of Project Completion Reports
Project Number: 29282-013


At the time of appraisal, urban and environmental conditions in provincial towns in Cambodia led to adverse impacts on people’s health and quality of life and were considered constraints to achieving the full economic growth potential of the towns. War, ineffectual management, and lack of maintenance severely deteriorated water supply systems and environmental sanitation in Cambodia’s provincial towns. Improving urban services was closely linked to the objectives of other social development programs, such as primary health care. Cambodia’s provincial towns serve as economic centers for the rural areas, linking the country’s rural and urban economies.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project which aims to improve urban environment, public health, and basic urban services in selected towns in Cambodia. IED overall assessment: Less than successful
