Bangladesh: Khulna Water Supply Project

Sovereign Project | 42171-012

Summary

The National Policy for Safe Water Supply & Sanitation (1998) is the main policy statement for the sector. Further, the Sector Development Program: Water and Sanitation Sector in Bangladesh 2005-2015 was issued in 2006 as the roadmap for sector development. Both documents emphasize the importance of sector governance and institutional development of implementing entities in parallel with capital investment.

ADB has formulated its sector strategy to support the GOB's policy and programs. The Country Partnership Strategy (2006-2010), Midterm Review for Bangladesh includes the PPTA in the 2010 pipelines for non-lending products, which has been subsequently advanced to 2009. The CPS Midterm Review includes the ensuing project in the 2011 pipeline for lending products.
