Australia and Cambodia have launched a utility program aimed at improving access to clean water for up to one million people in this Southeast Asian country, which suffered severe shortages earlier this year.
“This is part of our commitment to supporting Cambodia to develop the quality infrastructure and services it needs to transition to a more resilient, inclusive and prosperous country,” Australian ambassador Angela Corcoran said in a statement on Tuesday.
Under the program, Melbourne-based South East Water will enter a two-year knowledge sharing program with three private Cambodian water companies and provide access to high quality technology and management practices.
