Capacity Development Resource Centre (CDRC)

ADB’s India Resident Mission (INRM) has been conducting capacity development programs for executing agencies for ADB-funded projects in India since 2008. During the period 2008-2010, INRM focused on delivering training programs on ADB procurement, consultant selection, disbursement, and safeguard procedures. In 2011, INRM adopted an institutional approach and established the Capacity Development Resource Centre (CDRC) in the Portfolio Management Unit (PMU).

With the establishment of CDRC, the capacity development efforts of INRM received a fillip. The training programs were scaled up to reach more executing agency staff. Coverage of the training programs expanded to project implementation topics, such as Project Management, Contract Management, Construction Management, State Highway Maintenance, Pre-Construction Activities, Detailed Project Report (DPR) Preparation for Road Projects, Water Requirement and Scheduling for Irrigation Projects, Operation and Maintenance of Irrigation Schemes, and Impact Evaluation, and thematic topics, such as Water Demand Management for Urban Projects, Trenchless Technologies for Urban Projects, Municipal Accounting Reforms, Municipal Waste Management, Heritage Conservation, Road Safety, and Financial Management and Accounting.

These training programs were delivered in collaboration with various national training and academic training institutes, such as the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee, Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI) in Hyderabad, Indian Academy of Highway Engineers (IAHE), National Institute of Construction Management and Research (NICMAR) in Pune, International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), The Energy Resources Institute (TERI) in Delhi, and Indian Society for Trenchless Technologies (IndSTT).
