Description The project will improve urban services and enhance regional economic connectivity in the provincial capital towns of Kampong Cham, Kratie, and Stung Treng along the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Corridor in Cambodia. It will finance key urban environmental infrastructure and enhance institutional effectiveness with a focus on private sector engagement, information and communication technology (ICT)-based public management systems, and the policy and planning environment for regional economic connectivity.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Cambodia had an estimated population of 15.2 million in 2016, spread across 26 provincial towns and numerous district towns. While Cambodia remains almost 80% rural, urbanization is accelerating and is expected to reach 30% of the national total by 2030. Provincial towns have urbanized rapidly while playing an important role in the national economy, which grew by 7% per year from 2015 to 2017. With an increasingly urban economy, urban services contribute to environmentally sustainable and inclusive growth by providing basic infrastructure for businesses and households, creating jobs, safeguarding the surrounding environment and ecosystem, and reducing exposure to flooding and other extreme events.
Impact Sustainable, inclusive, equitable, and resilient growth achieved
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Urban services for enhancing regional economic connectivity in participating towns improved

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

Detailed engineering design (DED) and bidding document for Kampong Cham wastewater and drainage subproject were already completed and finalized; bidding will commence on 22-July 2021. DED for Kratie and Stung Treng wastewater and drainage subprojects are still under preparation.

DED and bidding documents for Kratie and Stung Treng solid waste management (SWM) subproject are completed; bidding for Kratie is ongoing. DED for SWM package in Kampong Cham is still under discussion.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is Category B for Environment. An initial environmental examination (IEE) including environmental management plan (EMP) was prepared for each of the three provincial towns during processing. The IEEs and EMPs will be updated during the detailed engineering design (DED) stage and the EMPs included in the tender and bid documents and final versions disclosed prior to contract award. Domestic environmental impact assessments will be prepared by a firm that is registered with Ministry of Environment (MoE). MPWT will obtain subproject approvals from MOE prior to civil works contractor mobilization.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is Category B for Involuntary Resettlement. Surveys were conducted to enable the quantification of resettlement impacts and baseline data for the preparation of the draft resettlement plan (RP). They included the inventory of losses to estimate resettlement impacts and a socioeconomic survey to assess pre-project living standards as well as likely social impacts resulting from land acquisition.
Indigenous Peoples The project is category C for Indigenous Peoples. No indigenous peoples communities are in the project area of impact. Cham and other ethnic minorities in the three towns are settled in upland villages, far from town centers where construction will take place. The project will not directly or indirectly affect the dignity, human rights, livelihood systems, or culture of indigenous peoples or ethnic minorities; and will not affect the territories or natural or cultural resources that indigenous peoples own, use, occupy, or claim as their ancestral domain.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The preliminary project design was informed by consultations carried out with stakeholders and affected persons. Consultation will be ongoing during implementation as described in the safeguard documents and the Stakeholder Communication Strategy. PMU and GDR will ensure consultations are carried out during update of the safeguards documents following detailed engineering design. Consultation will include individual and focus group discussions to ensure the displaced persons are informed about: (a) resettlement impacts, asset valuation/RCS, entitlements and compensation payment modalities with time lines, (b) rehabilitation and income restoration measures suggested for the project displaced persons, (c) environmental impacts and mitigation measures; and (d) project grievance redress mechanism.
During Project Implementation During implementation, there will be regular liaison with affected persons and community, consultation meetings with communities in the project area of influence and with project displaced persons, including women and vulnerable groups, to ensure project related informationis regularly shared.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services All consultants are being recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). Consulting firm was engaged using the quality-and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a standard quality cost ratio of 90:10.
Procurement All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time). International competitive bidding (ICB) will be used for works contracts estimated to cost $3 million and above. National competitive bidding (NCB) will be used for works contracts estimated to cost over $100,000 equivalent up to below $3 million. For NCB, the first draft English language of the procurement documents (bidding documents, and draft contract) should be submitted for ADB approval regardless of the estimated contract amount. Subsequent procurements are subject to post review. All ICB packages (bidding document, bid evaluation report, and draft contract) are subject to ADB prior review and approval.
