Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

CWAE plans to conduct natural resource management sector studies to support Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) development in the countries of Pakistan and Afghanistan. This is part of an overall CWAE plan to prepare a series of natural resources management sector studies for CWRD countries during 2006, 2007, and 2008. The studies are to be synchronized with CPS work to provide necessary ETSW inputs for the nature resource sector and environment.

ADB's Environment Policy requires that the country environmental analysis (CEA) be undertaken to provide thematic input on the environment into the CPS process. It is recognized much of the same basic information that is collected for a CEA is needed for the natural resources sector assessments. As such, the work on natural resource sector assessments will also support the preparation of CEA.

The natural resource sector studies will set out a road map to guide sector investments and environmental improvements. To develop the road map, the studies will (i) examine the current status and economic potential of environmental and natural resources, (ii) examine barriers and constraints to development of the natural resource sector and to successful interventions for environmental improvement, (iii) discusses the current responses of the government and donors, (iv) and priorize key issues in the natural resource and environment management.
