Project context, objectives and description

Throughout Cambodia, there is limited infrastructure and services for the containment, collection, and treatment of solid waste, wastewater, and fecal sludge. Services are generally outsourced to the private sector, which has difficulties recovering fees from service users. When infrastructure is built, financial provisions for effective operations and maintenance are usually not made and the facilities can rapidly degrade.

Through this project, we will identify and formalize revenue generation sources to enable the efficient running of waste and sanitation infrastructure. The overall aim is to develop a replicable model for sustainable decentralized sanitation and waste management in coastal/tourist zones in Cambodia comprising financially sustainable infrastructure.

Activities of this project include:

  • Identify options for a comprehensive revenue collection system to cover the Koh Thonsay Decentralised Wastewater System (DEWATS), the crab market Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), landfill and recycling facility;
  • Support the government with the implementation;
  • Capacity building of Kep municipal and provincial governments.
