Regional : Second Greater Mekong Subregion Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project
The project will help transform secondary GMS central and southern corridor towns into economically inclusive, competitive tourism destinations by improving transport infrastructure, urban environmental services, and capacity to sustainably manage tourism growth. It will boost trade in services and deepen regional cooperation and integration in the GMS and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). About 97,000 residents are expected to directly benefit from climate-resilient infrastructure development and increased access to economic opportunities. Project investments are prioritized in the ASEAN Tourism Strategic Plan 20152025, GMS Tourism Sector Strategy 20162025, and national tourism strategies

|Description||The project will help transform secondary GMS central and southern corridor towns into economically inclusive, competitive tourism destinations by improving transport infrastructure, urban environmental services, and capacity to sustainably manage tourism growth. It will boost trade in services and deepen regional cooperation and integration in the GMS and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). About 97,000 residents are expected to directly benefit from climate-resilient infrastructure development and increased access to economic opportunities. Project investments are prioritized in the ASEAN Tourism Strategic Plan 20152025, GMS Tourism Sector Strategy 20162025, and national tourism strategies|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
Cambodia and the Lao PDR actively promote tourism because it produces substantial national income, local employment, private investment and trade in services. Tourism directly contributes 12.4% to Cambodia's gross domestic product (GDP) and 4.6% to Lao PDR's GDP, generating 70%78% of service exports and $1.1 billion annual investment. There are about 1.1 million tourism workers in the two countries. Most are women employed by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Tourist visa on arrival is permitted for 180 countries and 15-day tourist visa exemptions granted to ASEAN citizens. Government efforts to upgrade gateway airports, transnational railways and highways, and secondary roads to facilitate travel and tourism are supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and other development partners. ASEAN and GMS policies to liberalize aviation services and ease cross-border vehicle movements complement physical infrastructure investments.
Even with these strengths and opportunities Cambodia and the Lao PDR rank low in the World Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index, mainly because secondary destinations lack modern transport infrastructure and quality urban environmental services. Other underlying constraints are inadequate tourism planning, low service standards, and a weak business enabling environment. Consequently, in 2016 the two countries received only 8% of ASEAN's total tourist arrivals. In the same year Cambodia's international tourist arrival growth decelerated to 5%, about half the medium-term rate, and Lao PDR's arrivals fell 9.5% compared to 2015. Fewer visitors and lower spending because of poor sanitation and hygiene reduces economic benefits by about $90 million per year. Average expenditure per visitor in Cambodia ($641) and the Lao PDR ($171) is far below Asia and the Pacific's benchmark $1,500. Imbalances within the countries is also a problem. About half of international tourist arrivals and corresponding visitor expenditure, destination investment, and direct tourism employment accrue to just 3 cities: Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Vientiane Capital.
The GMS central and southern corridors are vulnerable to climate change, particularly increasingly severe weather events in Cambodia's coastal zone and flooding in Lao PDR's Mekong and Nam Xong River valleys. Climate vulnerability and risk are exacerbated by limited country capacity to integrate adaptation and mitigation solutions. Countering climate change requires finance and knowledge to retrofit and construct climate-resilient infrastructure and better prepare for natural disasters. Resource-efficiency certification programs, including the ASEAN green hotel standard, and public awareness campaigns to promote lower-carbon travel, emissions offsets, and environmentally-friendly tourism services are also needed.
To help address these constraints the project builds on the ongoing GMS Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project by strategically financing climate-resilient road, water transport, and urban infrastructure in areas with comparative tourism advantages. Priority investments include (i) road improvements to decongest urban areas and link secondary towns with nearby tourist attractions; (ii) coastal and river passenger ports to increase handling capacity and provide private operators with the facilities needed to expand water transport and recreation services; (iii) storm water drains and riverbank protection in flood-prone areas; and (iv) modern solid waste and septic management systems with expanded collection services, materials recovery, and hygienic disposal facilities
Sustainable, inclusive, and more balanced tourism development achieved.
