50101-002: Third Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Project (formerly Third Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Services Sector Development Program) | Asian Development Bank

Cambodia: Third Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Project (formerly Third Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Services Sector Development Program)

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50101-002 Status: Proposed

The proposed project will continue expansion of rural water supply and sanitation (RWSS) services, expanding the number of provinces from six to ten (Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Kampong Chhnang, Kampong Thom, Kampong Speu, Kampot, Pursat, Siem Reap, Oddar Meachay, and Preah Vihear), and serving about 630 villages. While the general approach will remain the same, refinements to the project will include: (i) improved hybrid-CLTS approach developed under the JFPR grant, incorporating climate change, disaster risk management, and water and sanitation safety planning; (ii) improved water quality testing; (iii) revised approach for the sanitation subsidy and new target of open defecation free communes; and (iv) new sanitation solutions for fecal sludge management and floating villages developed under the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Rationale for further sector financing. A third sector project is needed to support the government in its continuous efforts to achieve (i) universal RWSS coverage nationwide and (ii) its recently introduced target of an open defecation free Cambodia, where every households has a toilet. Given that 36.7% of the rural population does not have access to safe water supply and 35.8% does not have access to a household toilet (and currently using open defecation), the task of achieving the government targets remains huge, even given the significant gains over the past decade. The current annual levels of growth for water supply (1.8%) and sanitation (4.3% post-2010) are insufficient to reach the 2025 target coverage, and both must be accelerated to at least 5% per annum until 2025 to realize the vision of universal coverage. Continued sector financing is needed to at least 2025, and possibly 2030, for the government to achieve its targets. The additional sector loan modality is suitable because of (i) strong links with the current project, including capacities developed; (ii) a high degree of project readiness, and a well-performing executing agency; and (iii) scaling up project benefits using innovative designs in climate change, disaster risk management, and sanitation, developed under the ongoing TR-TA and grant.
Impact Universal access to safe water supply and sanitation services achieved
Outcome Access to safe and affordable drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for rural areas in selected provinces around the Tonle Sap lake improved.
Outputs

RWSS management decentralized

Rural water supply service in the Tonle Sap Provinces expanded

Rural sanitation in Tonle Sap Provinces expanded
