Since mid-2018 PDP has managed the NZ-ASEAN Renewable Energy Facility, an International Development Cooperation programme funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT). The goal of the Facility is to support increased beneficial use of renewable energy resources in Lao PDR and Cambodia, to enable economic and social development.
Through a portfolio of technical assistance and capacity building Projects, the Facility has provided flexible and responsive support to the governments of Lao PDR and Cambodia, in coordination with support from other donors including World Bank, Australia, Switzerland and the USA.
The Facility has an operating budget of NZD 11.85 million, of which NZD 1.0 million has been allocated to projects in Cambodia. The Facility will continue until early 2025.
