A PDA funded by $3.5 million equivalent from ADBs Special Funds resources will be provided to support the ensuing project. The proposed Coastal Towns Infrastructure Improvement Project takes an integrated approach to urban environmental improvement in vulnerable coastal towns in Bangladesh that suffer deficits in basic urban services and are severely at risk to climate change. The project will provide climate-resilient municipal infrastructure with investments in water supply, sanitation, drainage, urban roads and bridges, solid waste management, slum improvement, and transport facilities. The project will strengthen local governance and capacity for sustainable service delivery and urban planning as well as improve natural disaster preparedness. The Local Government Engineering Department, which has extensive experience in managing urban projects supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), will be the executing agency.
