The CDTA is designed to support the realization of the goals and objectives of the Infrastructure Reform Sector Development Program (IRSDP) loan approved by ADB?s Board in 2006 . This program of assistance has highlighted a number of important gaps that need to be resolved to make the overall IRSDP program fully effective, particularly in the area of the Public Private Partnerships (PPP) project preparation and structuring at the project initiation level with Government Contracting Agencies (GCAs). The CDTA will provide capacity development assistance to bridge these gaps. The CDTA is in line with (i) ADB?s country strategy, (ii) ADB?s long term strategic framework (Strategy 2020) expectation for greater ADB involvement in private sector development, and (iii) the promotion of new financing instruments and modalities (FIMs) under the innovation and financing initiative. The design and monitoring framework is presented in Appendix 1.
