The goal of the PPTA is to support the ASG's economic and poverty reduction efforts through integrated FREM along the Brahmaputra and Barrak rivers. The Project aims to promote people's livelihoods, through comprehensive FREM measures, which will provide protection from river erosion and floods, with a focus on the most vital areas of economic and national interests. An adaptive process approach is proposed that will protect critical reaches first, and then replicate suitable measures to other areas later. Other nonstructural measures will be adopted with intensive stakeholder participation. The TA will be undertaken in two phases. Phase 1 will comprise (i) preparation of a state-level integrated FREM strategy and action agendas, and (ii) identification of cost-effective and affordable FREM options in the priority subproject areas.
