This document provides the project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) report for the Main River Flood and Bank Erosion Risk Management Program in Bangladesh. The PTA is necessary to support analysis and preparation of the program in accordance with the government’s and Asian Development Bank’s standards and expectations. Economical and technical feasibility and safeguard issues of high priority protection sites should be studied in preparation for tranche-1 subprojects. Requirements for the multitranche financing facility (MFF), such as a sector road map and investment plan should be reviewed and proposed. For institutional, operation and maintenance of infrastructure, and community-based disaster management aspects, existing capacity and practices need to be examined, and required measures which could be directed by the program should be proposed.
