Description The goal of the TA is to facilitate sustainable urban development for low-income communities in Sindh. Its objective, to assist the Government in preparing a project to improve basic urban infrastructure and services in a participatory manner in selected low-income communities in urban centers in Sindh. The project's output will consist of (i) a sectoral and institutional analysis review and data collection study; (ii) a participatory framework for community participation leading to the formulation of priority infrastructure and institutional arrangements; and (iii) a feasibility study suitable for ADB financing.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The PPTA is consistent ADB's Country Strategy and Program (2002-2006), which emphasizes support for governance reform programs and devolution, provision of basic urban services and water, inclusive social development, and sustainable environmental management. The PPTA is also fully consistent with the increased emphasis on lending for economic infrastructure, including specifically for urban renewal and development, under ADB's recent country strategy and program updates in 2005 and 2006.
