Sovereign Project | 40389-012

Summary

a. Link to Country Partnership Strategy/Regional Cooperation Strategy: The MFF will support CPS outcomes by (i) improving governance to better manage basic urban services; and (ii) relieving infrastructure deficits that constrain urban services delivery. The PPTA and MFF will reinforce CPS themes of public-private partnerships (PPP), as PPP is essential for introducing incentive structures that improve urban service delivery. Improved access to, and quality/reliability of water supply will also benefit women, typically burdened with household water supply management and sanitation-related family illnessimprove urban living standards and make cities and towns stronger engines of economic growth

b. Impact: Improved municipal environment and public health for an estimated 6 million residents across some 11 larger intermediate cities of Punjab Province
