On 15 May 2019, the German Embassy in Phnom Penh issued a press release on the commitment of Germany to end poverty in Cambodia. Germany will provide a loan for rural infrastructure, a grant for nutrition and social accountability, and increase its capacity building efforts in public health and rural development. The new loan for rural infrastructure will be a joint project with the French Agency for International Development (AFD) and the European Union. The total project volume is expected to exceed 80 million euros (out of which 30 million euros will be funded by the German grant). With this truly European effort, the project will make a big difference for the livelihoods of Cambodia’s rural population.
