The Government of Armenia requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to provide policy and advisory technical assistance (TA) to prepare city development/investment plans (CDPs) in the four secondary cities: Gyumri, Vanadzor, Dilijan, and Jermuk. The government and ADB approved the Sustainable Urban Development Investment Program in 2011 to finance priority infrastructure projects in urban areas of Armenia for a total amount of $400 million equivalent. The first tranche for $50 million will finance projects in Yerevan. The subsequent tranches to be approved in 2013 and onward will mainly focus on secondary cities. The CDPs will focus on key development and policy challenges related to urban sectors including urban transport, water supply and sanitation, solid waste management, district heating, housing, economic development, logistics, tourism, and lighting.
