Building Back Better One Project at a Time

In 2020, ADB and its financing partners faced the COVID-19 pandemic while simultaneously ensuring that the progress made in the past decades does not slide. From providing initial emergency assistance to supporting initiatives that work toward climate change, we helped our client countries start taking the path toward green, inclusive, and resilient recovery. These are some of our partnership stories during the year.

Improving Value Chains to Boost Agriculture


ADB, with the OPEC Fund for International Development, the Government of Australia, and the Nordic Development Fund, worked on strengthening agricultural value chains that would help Cambodia achieve food security.

Resiliency through Integrated Water Management


ADB and its financing partners supported Cambodia in improving the management of its water resources and becoming better prepared to face climate change and respond to natural disasters.

Reducing Poverty by Empowering the Farmers


ADB, the International Fund for Agricultural Development, and the Government of Finland are helping improve the lives of poor farmers in Cambodia’s Tonle Sap Basin.
