Description The project will improve urban services and enhance regional economic connectivity in provincial capital towns of Kampong Cham, Kratie, and Stung Treng along the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Central Corridor in Cambodia. The project will finance key urban environmental infrastructure and enhance institutional effectiveness with a focus on private sector engagement and information and communication technology-based public management systems, and the policy and planning environment for regional economic connectivity.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Cambodia's population was estimated at 15.2 million in 2016, spread across 26 cities 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 rapidly urbanized while playing an important role in the national economy that grows constantly at 7.0% per annum from 2015 2017. With an increasingly urban economy, urban services contribute to environmentally sustainable and inclusive growth through 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
