Description The primary objective of the Project is to promote sustainable growth and poverty reduction in the six Project cities in Madhya Pradesh, and thereafter in the other cities in the state. Specifically, the Project will: (i) provide sustainable basic urban infrastructure and services to all citizens of the six Project cities; and (ii) support comprehensive urban governance and institutional reform to enhance accountability in municipal management, and strengthen the capacities of the Project cities, particularly in the areas of resources mobilization and cost recovery. While the Project will benefit the entire urban community in general, some of its components will focus on upgrading the conditions of the poorest and most needy groups in the slum areas in particular. The Project comprises three parts. Part A for the urban water supply and environmental improvement covers the improvement and expansion of the following municipal infrastructure and services: (i) urban water supply, (ii) sewerage and sanitation, (iii) storm water drainage, and (iv) solid waste management. Part B for urban governance and institutional development is designed to strengthen the capacities of the Project cities to plan and manage urban development in a more effective, transparent and sustainable manner. It consists of two components: (i) a comprehensive 5- to 7-year capacity development for urban governance reform, and (ii) two community-level funds that will provide the framework for participatory planning between the municipal authorities and communities at neighborhood level, for integrating slum improvements with citywide infrastructure. Part C for project implementation assistance will consist of the provision of support to the Project Management Unit (PMU) at state level and the Project implementation Units (PIUs) at city level with activities immediately related to the implementation of the Project.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Project was incorporated in ADB's country strategy and 4 year rolling program from 2000-2003. It was also included in India 10th 5 year plan (2002-2007). The project was planned and designed as a project loan with the majority of the investments to the water supply and sanitation sectors. A parallel grant of $80 million has beenprovided by DFID to the Madhya Pradesh Urban Services for the poor (MPUSP) program for capacity building, slum rehabilitation and modernization of municipal administration in the 4 towns.
