Cambodia and Asian Development Bank – Partnership for Inclusive Growth: Development Effectiveness Brief

This publication outlines the results of the multilateral development partnership between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Cambodia over the years.

It explores how ADB interventions have made a difference in the lives of people in the country. Over the past 20 years, Cambodia has achieved remarkable economic development, attaining middle-income status in 2016 and reducing poverty rate from 47.8% in 2007 to 13.5% in 2014. As Cambodia’s largest multilateral development partner, ADB’s completed projects between 2011 and 2017 have provided low-cost electricity, improved water supply, and delivered new or improved sanitation to thousands of rural households, and constructed or upgraded more than 1,400 kilometers of roads.
