The $23m infrastructure investments, meanwhile, consist of a $6m loan from the Climate Investment Fund’s Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program for Cambodia, and a $5m grant in concessional climate finance. In addition, the Green Climate Fund will also extend a $12m loan through the ACGF Green Recovery Program. 

“The program combines policy reforms and project investments that will mutually support each other to maximize gains,” ADB Unit Head for Sovereign Energy Operations (Greater Mekong Subregion) Pradeep Tharakan said. 

“This is expected to pave the way for public and private sector investments in critical new technologies, such as energy efficiency and storage. It will also help set clean energy targets for the country, and integrate improved power development and energy use planning across sectors, including climate-proofing critical infrastructure.”
