The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will provide Cambodia a $30 million grant for the fourth phase of a flood protection project and canal and sewer system improvements in Phnom Penh.
The JICA programme officer Say Bora told The Post on Wednesday: “The Royal Government of Japan has signed and approved [this project which] takes three years. If there is no problem, maybe in the next two to three months, the project can proceed.”
Affiliated Network for Social Accountability director San Chey said the project implementer who uses the grant should carefully consider the quality of the construction.
“Don’t build anything that is easily broken, don’t do anything carelessly. [These types of projects] used to take many years – both constructing roads and sewers in Phnom Penh and the provinces,” said Chey.
The Phnom Penh Municipality said the project includes installation of a master sewer network of 8.2km in Tuol Kork district, installation of a master sewer network of 4.4km in Daun Penh, and construction of an underground reservoir and pumping station in the park in front of the Council for the Development of Cambodia.
Other works under the project are the installation of automatic mechanical bars to collect waste in front of the waterway at the Chaktomuk and Phsar Chas pumping stations and provision of two mobile water pump trucks to the Phnom Penh Administration.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has also provided financing to the tune of $250 million to Cambodia to implement four projects after a meeting between Minister of Economy and Finance Aun Pornmoniroth.
ADB representative Sunniya Durrani-Jamal signed a financing agreement in Cambodia.
In an October 24 press release, the ministry said the financing for the four projects involves the following – the second phase of a High School Education Development Programme worth $53.5 million.
It will also be used for the implementation of the 2014-2018 educational strategy and prediction of 2020 educational development demand and 2015-2025 Cambodian Industrial Development Policy.
The ADB financing will also be utilised for the second phase of improvement in environmental management around the Tonle Sap involving $97.7 million.
And finally, the funds will cover the cost of the fourth phase of a development project of corridor cities in the Greater Mekong Sub-region worth $88.5 million and the second phase of a tourist infrastructure development project for inclusive growth in the Greater Mekong Sub-region that will cost $30.89 million.

(English): Cambodia and the World Bank signed agreements on July 12, 2018 of US $ 200 million in Concessional Loan signaling the start of the implementation of two key investment projects, one seeking to improve higher education for industrial development, and the other one focused on enhancing road linkages from the economic center of the country—Phnom Penh—to the only deep-sea port in Preah Sihanouk province. The two projects are financed through credits from the International Development Association, the Bank’s fund for the poorest countries. They are credits without interest, with a final maturity of 38 years, including a grace period of six years.
[Higher Education Institutions Capacity Improvement Project (HEICP)] was approved by the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors on April 28, 2018. Through the US$90 million HEICP, the World Bank will support Cambodia’s efforts to improve the quality of higher education and research in the country and to broaden access to higher education for disadvantaged students. This six years project will focus on improving science, technology, engineering, mathematic as well as agricultural programs, with the goal of equipping Cambodian graduates with more relevant and transferable skills that can support the country transition from a labor-intensive economy to one driven by knowledge. The project’s five key activities include: providing research funds in the priority subject areas; expanding classrooms and laboratories; building dormitories for disadvantaged students, such as students from poor households and remote areas, as well as female students; strengthening quality assurance and information systems; and working with international partners to improve the curriculum and methodology of the priority subject areas.
[Second Road Asset Management Project (RAMP II)] — was approved by the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors on June 21, 2018. The US$110 million in additional financing for RAMP II will aim to improve the conditions, safety, and climate resilience of National Road No. 4. This road endures heavy traffic through several economic zones and rich agricultural areas. This additional financing will be used to upgrade more than 200 kilometers and improve road shoulders, build drains and bridges with innovative, climate resilient designs. This project will also seek to upgrade existing weighing stations and reduce the risk of overloading, install speed-limit zoning, guide-signs, solar powered lights, and speed cameras.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) has decided to provide US$190 million worth financing for two development projects in Cambodia.
