Complete Rural Access to Clean Water Supply Targeted by 2025

Royal Government of Cambodia is committed to ensure full access to supply of clean water in rural communities by 2025.

The commitment was shared by H.E. Chan Darong, Spokesperson and Secretary of State at the Ministry of Rural Development in a press conference here recently in Phnom Penh.

Beside the clean water supply, improved sanitation will also be ensured, said H.E. Chan Darong.

According to the spokesperson, rural sanitation access increased from 71 percent in 2017 to 80 percent in 2019.

Clean water access in rural areas increased from 50 percent in 2017 to 65 percent in 2019, he added.

The targets set will be achieved through intimate collaboration with all concerned stakeholders and utilisation of assistances and grants, particularly in the memorandums of understanding with 47 non-governmental organisations.
