    India: Assam Governance and Public Resource Management Sector Development Program

    The government of Assam faced fiscal- and governance-related structural problems. Its fiscal position was weak due to stagnation in tax and nontax revenues and growing recurrent expenditures. Subsidies for loss-making public sector enterprises and increasing pension liabilities added to the fiscal strain. From the central government perspective, inadequate fiscal consolidation at state level was seen as having the potential to undermine the sustainability of recent economic performance and the delivery of promised economic prospects.

    Cambodia: Tonle Sap Sustainable Livelihoods Project

    The investment rationale of the Tonle Sap Sustainable Livelihoods Project was derived from an attempt to tackle poverty in the Tonle Sap region, where poverty rate is higher than the country as a whole and where rural livelihood assets were affected by worsening environmental trends around Tonle Sap. Natural capital, forests, fish, wildlife, and the entire biosphere, in fact, was under pressure due to the excessive and growing pressure of human exploitation.

    Viet Nam: Central Region Urban Environmental Improvement Project

    In 2003, the level of investment made for urban sector maintenance, repairs, and new capital works in the previous decades had not been sufficient to keep pace with the continuing rapid urbanization in Viet Nam. Weak institutions, lack of qualified human resources, financial constraints, lack of community participation, and slow implementation of the legal framework for the urban sector were cited as contributing factors to the low coverage and inefficiency of urban services.
