Cambodia: Capacity Development for Public–Private Partnerships

Sovereign Project | 47164-001

Summary

Objective. In line with the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) commitment to advancing public-private partnerships (PPPs) in Cambodia, the proposed TA will strengthen the capacity of senior and mid-career officials of the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) to develop and manage PPPs through well-designed and targeted training activities in areas with potential for enhanced PPP initiatives. This will support improved analysis, formulation, and implementation of PPP projects, strengthen public sector institutional capacity to develop and catalyze pilot PPPs, and promote the more effective management and implementation of PPP projects to support sector development strategies across the economy.

In line with the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) commitment to advancing public-private partnerships (PPPs) in Cambodia, the proposed TA will strengthen the capacity of senior and mid-career officials of the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) to develop and manage PPPs through well-designed and targeted training activities in areas with potential for enhanced PPP initiatives. This will support improved analysis, formulation, and implementation of PPP projects, strengthen public sector institutional capacity to develop and catalyze pilot PPPs, and promote the more effective management and implementation of PPP projects to support sector development strategies across the economy.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy PPPs are an important component of the Government's development strategy. Cambodia faces substantial challenges providing new and improved infrastructure for its growing economy. However, implementation of public sector infrastructure and social service development strategies is constrained by the limited availability of long term debt in local financial markets, the small size of the country's tax revenues, and the continued reliance on concessional Official Development Assistance which is expected to decline sharply in the future. PPPs would provide the Government with increased opportunities to address this critical development issue by reducing the need for public debt, leveraging limited public revenues, and bringing in private sector skills and finance. The use of PPPs can also improve service delivery as the private sector contractor accurately meets users' requirements on competitive terms.
Impact Improved public infrastructure investments through PPPs
