Cambodia: Building Solid Physical and Social Infrastructure

'Fetching water used to mean a two-kilometer walk and two hours out of the day for Kan Nheung. Since a well was built through the Tonle Sap Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Project, the chore now only takes her a few minutes and has dramatically changed the lives of the women and children in her village.'

Cambodia has made impressive progress in economic and social development since the Paris Peace Agreement in 1991. Cambodia was founding member of ADB in 1966, and as of December 2009 has received about $1.2 billion in loans and grants for the development of physical and social infrastructure, public sector management, private sector and finance sector development, and natural resource management and conservation.
