The project is designed to support the Government's National Strategic Development Plan (2006-2010) to reduce poverty in selected rural areas through enhanced agricultural production and diversification. In accordance with the NWRP and MOWRAM's SDP, the TA will strengthen the Government's capacity to manage its water resources in a sustainable, participatory, and transparent way, focusing on improving irrigation facilities and river basin management in the Tonle Sap Basin.
The TA will assist the Government to prepare an investment project to increase irrigation productivity and area and to implement IMT to meet its NSDP goals. Continued assistance is also required to assist MOWRAM to successfully implement the non-investment aspects of its Strategic Plan. Similarly, the TA will provide ongoing support to establish the Tonle Sap Basin Management Organization (TSBMO) to support the process of IWRM following the recommendations of TA 4427-CAM under the Tonle Sap Initiative.
