The Asian Development Bank and the Cambodian government have signed an agreement
for $27 million in grants to improve clean water and sanitation in the country.
Signed December 28, the agreement consists of two grants to assist the rural water
supply, sanitation and health care.
One of the projects encompassed by the grants is the Tonle Sap Rural Water Supply
and Sanitation Project.
Cambodia still has among the poorest water and sanitation coverage in the world,
and the project is designed to help provide clean drinking water for the more than
one million people living around the Tonle Sap river basin.
