Sovereign Project | 43166-032

Summary

India?s 11th Five Year Plan (FYP; April 2007 to March 2012) has set out 27 national targets, covering both economic and social goals which include: (i) clean drinking water to be available to all by 2009, ensuring that there are no slip-backs by the end of the 11th FYP; and (ii) to treat all urban wastewater by 2011?12 to clean the river waters. Also, the 11th FYP recognizes infrastructure bottlenecks and lack of long-term funds for infrastructure investment as the binding constraints for achieving the goals. The 11th FYP calls for public sector investment in meeting the infrastructure requirements where private participation is unlikely to be forthcoming.

Description
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

India?s 11th Five Year Plan (FYP; April 2007 to March 2012) has set out 27 national targets, covering both economic and social goals which include: (i) clean drinking water to be available to all by 2009, ensuring that there are no slip-backs by the end of the 11th FYP; and (ii) to treat all urban wastewater by 2011?12 to clean the river waters. Also, the 11th FYP recognizes infrastructure bottlenecks and lack of long-term funds for infrastructure investment as the binding constraints for achieving the goals. The 11th FYP calls for public sector investment in meeting the infrastructure requirements where private participation is unlikely to be forthcoming.

The Country Partnership and Strategy (CPS) and ADB?s assistance program for 2009?2011 have been designed to support the Government of India?s efforts to address the binding constraints in the 11th FYP through four strategic pillars. One of the strategic pillars puts emphasis on the continuation of ADB?s assistance to infrastructure development in various sectors, including urban.
