Description An additional financing to the Tonle Sap Poverty Reduction and Smallholder Development Project is proposed for seven provinces (Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, Prey Veng, Siem Reap, and Tboung Khmum) in Cambodia. The additional financing will enhance agricultural productivity and improve access to markets in 270 target communes through investments in climate-resilient productive infrastructure, building capacity in disaster risk management of the communities and commune councils, and creating an enabled environment for agricultural productivity, diversification and climate resilience.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Given the success of the current project, executing agencies have requested ADB support for an additional financing to scale up the current project activities. Demand for agricultural production infrastructure for poverty reduction in the Tonle Sap Basin is high; over 90% of the poor live in rural areas and are dependent on small-scale agricultural production for their livelihood. Frequency and intensity of disasters such as floods and droughts in the Tonle Sap Basin require interventions to enhance climate resilience and reduce disaster risk. The additional financing will also strengthen ADB''s basin-scale strategic approach in the Tonle Sap basin by creating synergies with other projects, such as the Climate-Resilient Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program (Rice SDP). Further, by using the additional financing modality, momentum of successes can be built on, and use of the current project resources optimized.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The project preparation process involved a wide range of key stakeholders, including many ministries and agencies, development partners, nongovernment organizations, and community-based organizations at critical milestones during the PPTA.
During Project Implementation Particular issues that require participation of the poor include: (i) criteria for selection of subprojects, including disaster risk reduction, and climate resilience; (ii) strengthening and establishment of livelihood improvement groups; (iii) selection of non-rice crops for support; and (iv) development of agribusinesses.
