Australia Supports Cambodia to Achieve Clean Water Goal

Australia is supporting the Royal Government of Cambodia to meet her goal on clean water access by 2030, reaffirmed the Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh in a news release.

‘Australia looks forward to working more closely with other development partners to support the Cambodian government to achieve its goal of providing access to clean water for all Cambodians by 2030,’ the embassy said.

According to the source, Australia recently hosted the first donor coordination group meeting on clean water in Cambodia. This important event brought development partners working on clean water together to share progress, discuss challenges, and find ways for improved collaboration to support better access to clean water in Cambodia.

Australia’s longstanding support in the clean water sector has enabled more than 1 million Cambodians to access clean piped water, it added.

‘Through CAPRED – our flagship economic development programme – we are building on this success and are currently supporting the Cambodian government t
o establish a Water Development Fund,’ said the embassy. ‘This will be a long-term financing mechanism to improve and accelerate access to a clean water supply for all Cambodian people.’
