This recipient-executed grant forms part of the Cambodia Southeast Asia DRM Project (P160929) which seeks to improve climate resilient rural road connectivity in select provinces across the country. The grant, which represents Component 2 of the Cambodia SEA DRM Project, supports the project development objective by strengthening the capacity of the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) to integrate disaster and climate resilience into financial planning, and meet post-disaster funding needs. This will be achieved by providing technical assistance to strengthen the Ministry of Economy and Finance's (MEF) capacity for financial planning for disaster resilience, including: (a) mainstreaming of disaster and climate resilience into public investment
planning and development processes; (b) preparation and implementation of a national disaster and
climate risk finance strategy; (c) facilitating the Recipient’s feasibility study on a regional disaster risk pooling mechanism; and (d) supporting day-to-day implementation of this part of the Project.
