Cofinancing operations enable ADB’s financing partners, governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and commercial organizations, to participate in financing ADB projects. The additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, technical assistance, other concessional cofinancing, and commercial cofinancing such as B loans, risk transfer arrangements, parallel loans and equity, guarantee cofinancing, and cofinancing for transactions under ADB’s Trade Finance Program.
From 1970 to the end of 2015, cumulative direct value-added (DVA) official cofinancing for Cambodia amounted to $485 million for 40 investment projects and $49.4 million for 48 technical assistance projects. Cumulative DVA commercial cofinancing for Cambodia amounted to $25.2 million for two investment projects.
In 2015, Cambodia received $38.6 million grant cofinancing from the Government of Australia, Strategic Climate Fund–Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (SCF-PPCR), Clean Energy Fund under the Clean Energy Financing Partnership Facility, and the Regional Malaria and Other Communicable Disease Threats Trust Fund under the Health Financing Partnership Facility, as well as $52 million loan cofinancing from Agence Française de Développement and SCF-PPCR.
