Description The project will rehabilitate about 729 kilometers (km) of rural roads in nine provinces (Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Kampong Cham, Kampong Chhnang, Kampong Speu, Kampong Thom, Pursat, Siem Reap, and Takeo) to paved condition. The rehabilitated roads will provide poor rural provinces with a safer, cost-effective rural road network with all-year access to markets and other social services. The project will also support a sustainable road maintenance regime in the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD), a community-based road safety program, an HIV/AIDS and human trafficking awareness and prevention program (HHTPP), and climate change adaptation measures.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The overarching objective of ADB''s country partnership strategy, 2011-2013 for Cambodia is poverty reduction, in line with the government's socioeconomic development priorities. The strategy focuses on two strategic objectives: (i) inclusive economic growth through provision of physical infrastructure, as well as interventions in other development activities such as vocational training, agriculture, and finance sector development; and (ii) social development and equity. Rehabilitating and enhancing the climate resilience of rural roads under the project will improve the access of the rural poor to markets and social services, and is a core means of promoting inclusive economic growth and reducing poverty, as well as enhancing social development and equity. The strategy includes four road projects; all are consistent with the sector assistance program evaluation recommendation to shift the focus to rehabilitating provincial and rural roads, rather than national roads.

The government's national strategy for growth for 2013 2018 (Rectangular Strategy for Growth, Employment, Equity, and Efficiency, Phase III) emphasizes the need to develop

physical infrastructure with three core areas (agriculture sector promotion, private sector development and employment, and capacity building and human resource development).11 The project supports this strategy, particularly as it enhances connectivity, balanced economic development, and access to social services in the nine remote rural provinces.

Impact Improved access to markets, jobs, and social services in nine project provinces
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Safe, climate-resilient and cost effective rural road network that provides all-year access in the agricultural areas of the nine project provinces
Progress Toward Outcome Activities on procurement of remaining civil works are ongoing, construction of civil works packages, and activities by the consultants on implementation supervision (original and additional financing), climate change adaptation framework, road safety, HIV/AIDS and road asset management are ongoing. The overall progress of the project is 33.38% as of end of March 2018.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

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

1. Rural Road Improvements in nine provinces - construction are ongoing to the awarded civil works contracts under the original financing. Procurement of civil works under the additional financing are ongoing.

2. Strengthened capacity for rural road asset management - consultant for the road asset management is mobilized and submitted inception report. Activities are ongoing.

3. Increased rural road safety and community awareness - SEO officers of MRD and consultant organized Road Safety Awareness Program, from 5-10 February 2018, to students, villagers and local authorities in Kampong Cham and Pursat provinces.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Environmental category for the project is B given the nature of the proposed project (i.e. improvement of existing roads, no widening of roads, etc.). Some of project roads in Battambang and Pursat are located in the transition zone of Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve (TLSBR). In addition, some activities under the Connectivity Improvements for Mekong River Islands Output, including the construction of 11 jetties, will take place near the Mekong River. Although none of the project activities are expected to have serious impacts on nearby areas (TLSBR and Mekong River), the Ministry of Rural Development has obtained no objection on the project implementation from relevant authorities (the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology, and the Cambodian Mekong River Commission). The initial environmental examination, including Mekong River Island Connectivity Output and its environmental assessment and review framework, has been prepared in compliance with the ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement.
Involuntary Resettlement Since none of the project roads will be widened, resettlement impacts are expected to be minimal. Therefore, project has been classified as category C for resettlement under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS). Nevertheless, a resettlement framework has been prepared in compliance with SPS to mitigate involuntary resettlement impacts in case they arise, due to road widening, during project implementation.
Indigenous Peoples Since the social assessments in the project areas during project design did not indicate the presence of indigenous peoples, the project is categorized as category C for indigenous peoples under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants financed by ADB will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. Consulting services financed by Export-Import Bank of Korea and Nordic Development Fund will follow their own consultant selection and recruitment procedures.
Procurement International competitive bidding procedures will be used for civil works contracts estimated to cost $1,000,000 or more. National competitive bidding for goods will be adopted for contracts estimated between $100,000 and $500,000. Shopping will be used for contracts for procurement of works and equipment worthless than $100,000.
