|Description||The TA aims to improve the effectiveness of the Government's overall development policy formulation, consistent with the Government's ongoing NSDP 2009-2013 and the preparation of the next planning cycle 2014-2018.

|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)|
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The Royal Government of Cambodia and relevant stakeholders have been consulted|
|During Project Implementation|
|Consulting Services||The TA requires about 6 person-months of international consultants and 12 person-months of a national consultant. Consultants will be engaged using individual consultant selection in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants by ADB and its Borrowers (2010, as amended from time to time). Individual consultant selection, rather than a firm, is appropriate in this instance, because the TA is comprised of a number of diverse activities.|
