ADB?s overarching goal for Cambodia, as defined in its CSP (2005?2009), is sustainable poverty reduction. To achieve this, the CSP Results Framework (2006-2010) focuses on three strategic pillars: (i) sustainable pro-poor economic growth, (ii) inclusive social development, and (iii) good governance and improved public service delivery. The CSPRF identifies the improved health and quality of life for rural population as a strategic goal in achieving inclusive social development. The RWSS sector is identified as a sector in which ADB will play a catalytic role.
