Sovereign Project | 43237-012

Summary

The project preparatory TA will (i) conduct sector and subsector analysis; (ii) help prioritize and identify project components for the ensuing loan project; (iii) determine the feasibility of the proposed investments for priority infrastructure construction and improvements covering (a) preliminary engineering designs, (b) cost estimates and financing plan, (c) financial and economic viability and sustainability, (d) environmental and social soundness, and (e) detailed implementation arrangements; and (iv) prepare an institutional capacity strengthening and public awareness programs. The TA will also prepare the project administration manual (PAM) that includes all the information and schedules describing project implementation. The TA will follow the government's Decision 48/2008/QD-ttg on Common General Guidelines on Feasibility study Preparation for Official Development Assistance Projects Funded by Five Banks issued on 4 March 2008.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Urban and climate change issues. Among various urban infrastructure, water supply systems have demonstrated a rapid growth in coverage, however, waste management operates at very low levels even in urban areas. Currently, only large cities have wastewater treatment plants, and less than 10% of the wastewater produced in Viet Nam is treated. Many of solid waste disposal sites are open dumping without proper treatment. Inability to recover cost for municipal service provision causes poor operation and maintenance of urban infrastructure. The impacts of climate change are particularly severe in coastal cities. Sea level rise delays discharge from the drainage system in flat and low-lying areas, reverses river flows during high tide and reservoirs are intruded by salt water, and causes serious damages on urban infrastructure facilities. Flooding contaminated by wastewater can cause serious health risks. The situation can be further exacerbated by increased rainfall and sea level rise, and poor management in solid waste. Careful assessments are needed on the extent of the potential impacts, on the bases of which appropriate response mechanisms need to be developed.

Consulting Services A team of consultants will be engaged through firm(s). The TA will require 9 positions and 23 person-months (PMpm) of international and 13 positions and 43 pm of national consulting services. ADB will select and engage consultants in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The quality- and cost-based selection method with quality-cost ration of 80:20, using full technical proposal procedures, will be followed. A small number of national individual consultants will be additionally engaged after submission of the draft final report, to support start-up activities of the ensuing loan project on an as-needed basis using the contingencies.
