To address Asian urban infrastructure development and financing needs, better systems of inter-governmental fiscal relations are needed together with improved instruments for local governments access to capital markets, as appropriate to the level of development of the capital market and the macro-economic context, and through better systems of mobilizing long term financing for infrastructure. This is a key theme of the Urban Operational Plan. The proposed TA will directly address this issue by developing assessment techniques to define what is appropriate at national and city levels and bring practitioners and innovators of infrastructure finance together with ADB's clients to discuss practical ways to bridge the infrastructure financing gap.
