Description The Project intends to (i) reduce urban poverty, improve community health, and related environmental degradation in 21 Project towns by improving water supply, sanitation, solid waste management, and roads for low-income communities; and (ii) ensure sustainability of urban investments by strengthening institutional capacities of newly devolved local government municipal agencies.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Government is implementing comprehensive governance reforms, with particular emphasis on enhancing the effectiveness of basic social services through its program for devolution of powers. The Project is formulated to support the Government s poverty reduction initiatives, as well as the devolution of power and responsibility to local governments for the provision and financing of urban infrastructure and municipal services. The Project incorporates several strategic features and incentives, including (i) promoting policy reform in accordance with the Punjab Local Government Ordinance 2001 (PLGO2001), and financial management and resource generation at the local government level, with adoption of cost-recovery principles and phased elimination of subsidies; (ii) prioritizing investments that meet the basic needs of urban communities; (iii) ensuring local community participation and ownership; and (iv) promoting equity participation by local governments in the investment packages.
