$100 Million Climate-Resilient Road Project to Improve Access to Basic Services, Economic Opportunities

The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors today approved a $100 million credit from the International Development Association (IDA) for the Cambodia Road Connectivity Improvement Project.

The project will enhance rural communities’ access to critical services, such as health centers, referral hospitals, schools and markets, through the improvement of climate-resilient rural roads. By improving selected sections of national and provincial roads, it will also reduce transportation costs and road disruption risks, helping to facilitate agriculture supply chains and tourism development.
