Cambodia: Greater Mekong Subregion Transmission Project

Evaluation Document | 2 June 2014

Validates the completion report’s assessment of the project, which aimed to provide sustainable, reliable, and affordably priced electricity to consumers in Cambodia, and enhance the poor’s accessibility by promoting a pro-poor policy environment in the sector. IED overall assessment: Successful.

ADB played a leading role in Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) cooperation in the power sector by financing a regional indicative master plan for power interconnection, which included interconnection between Cambodia and Viet Nam. Subregional electricity trade was expected to provide significant economic and environmental benefits to individual countries and to the subregion. Power trade would reduce GMS members’ national investments in power reserves to meet peak demand, supply a reliable source of electricity, reduce operating costs, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and increase consumers’ access to the cheapest sources of electricity in the subregion.

This report validates the completion report of the project. IED overall assessment: Successful.
