The PPTA (i) will leverage the experience gained from the earlier projects, and incorporate lessons learned to prepare for the project; (ii) will assist the government in amending the Development Plan, preparing cost estimates and financing plan and the feasibility studies of the sample subprojects, with a special focus on structuring and refining the project design, including rationale, modality, appraisal, financing, implementation and institutional arrangements, and developing eligibility and evaluation criteria for future subproject selection in close consultation with the government and ADB; and (iii) will also support consultations with various stakeholders.
