    The expected impact of the S-CDTA is successful implementation of the proposed FDERP. The outcome will be improved project readiness through adoption of best project management practices, strengthened EA/IA capacity to undertake emergency rehabilitation activities, improved inter-ministerial coordination in the start-up phase and analytical work, as required.
    Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
    The Mekong River started to rise in early August 2011, with water levels rising significantly when Typhoons Nesat and Nalgae in late September and early October brought heavy rain. 18 out of 24 provinces and municipalities have subsequently been inundated and over 1.5 million people affected. The damage from the 2011 flooding is expected to exceed that of floods in 1996 and 2000, both in terms of loss of life and impacts on infrastructure and agricultural crops, largely because the water rose and receded three times.

    Successful implementation of the proposed Advance Actions for the Flood Damage Emergency Reconstruction Project (FDERP)

    Project Outcome

    Description of Outcome

    Improved project readiness through adoption of best project management practices, strengthened EA/IA capacity to undertake emergency rehabilitation activities and improved inter-ministerial coordination in the start-up phase.

    Progress Toward Outcome
    Most of the TA objectives were achieved satisfactorily.

    Implementation Progress

    Description of Project Outputs

    1. Supporting establishment of an effective project management system, including high quality and efficient procurement and recruitment in conformance with strong good governance principles.

    2. Supporting a follow-up mechanism to finalize early batches of sub-projects ready for tender.

    3. Supporting establishment of sound fiduciary arrangements.

    4. Establishment of robust social and safeguards measures.

    Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

    The TA is on good track. However, the input of the national procurement consultant is still needed to help the EA/IA to prepare the procurement related works for stage 3 subprojects under the Loan 2852/Grant 0285-CAM: Flood Damage Emergency Reconstruction Project. Therefore, the TA closing date was extended from 31 December 2012 to 30 June 2013. Contract variation was made to extend the consultant's contract till 28 June 2013 with additional inputs of 47 working days.

    The TA has been completed and the TA account is in the process of closure, awaiting certification from consultants. A TCR will be circulated in Q1 of 2014.

    The Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) will be the Executing Agency and ADB's Cambodia Resident Mission (CARM) will implement the TA, including recruitment of individual consultants. Recruitment of a consulting firm to assist implement the S-CDTA will not be undertaken, due to the emergency nature of the project.
