Asian Development Bank and Cambodia: Fact Sheet

ADB has approved $2.86 billion in lending, grants, and technical assistance for Cambodia since 1966, and is the country’s largest multilateral development partner.

ADB’s assistance to Cambodia rests on deepened rural–urban–regional links, and human and social development as strategic pillars; and enhanced public sector management as a crosscutting pillar.

Between 2010 and 2015 It helped connect 40,000 new rural households to electricity; construct or upgrade 1,084 kilometers of roads; provide 96,000 new rural households with access to improved water supply; and deliver new or improved sanitation to 71,822 households. In education, 206,340 secondary school students are benefiting from new or improved educational facilities. ADB will continue to help Cambodia achieve more broadly based, sustainable, and inclusive growth through its country partnership strategy.

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Cambodia as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
