The expected impact of the TA is to improve the quality of life for mega city residents, including the poor, in a sustainable manner. The anticipated outcomes are (i) an agreed-upon design and action plan to establish and operationalize an SFV for the mega city, and (ii) an investment program/project loan for mega-city infrastructure and services development that is suitable for ADB financing. The TA will have two overlapping parts: (i) part A: Specialized Financing Vehicle; and (ii) part B: Mega City Investment Program/Project.
Part A will assess the feasibility and design of an SFV that will (i) in the short term, act as an efficient conduit to channel development funds to Karachi s infrastructure and services; (ii) be a catalyst in the transition toward commercial financing of mega city infrastructure and services; and (iii) in the medium to long term, mobilize funds from nongovernment sources to finance the mega city's large-scale infrastructure needs.
