Urban Financing Partnership Facility (UFPF)
What is the UFPF?
The UFPF was established in November 2009 for investment co-financing and technical assistance for urban environment infrastructure that benefits the poor.
The aim of the UFPF is to raise and utilize development partner funds for investment co-financing in urban environmental infrastructure projects and support a wide range of technical assistance to help lay the groundwork for such projects.
What are the priorities?
The UFPF prioritizes investments in climate change mitigation and adaptation of urban infrastructure projects by local governments and cities that benefit the poor.
What kind of activities will be financed from the fund?
The UFPF supports public transport, water supply and sanitation, solid waste management and urban renewal projects that are inclusive and benefit the poor, and are environmentally sustainable. It provides:
- technical assistance for building DMC/local government/utility capacity for (a) pre-feasibility assessments and project structuring (b) project implementation, (c) guarantees utilization;
- early-stage investment or viability gap financing; and
- guarantees to help build a pipeline of pro-poor bankable urban environmental projects that are able to borrow cost effectively from domestic markets and stimulate long-term investment interest from mainstream investors.
Who is eligible to receive the grant?
All ADB Developing Member Countries (DMCs) are eligible for the grant, for specific urban infrastructure sectors, namely water, sanitation, wastewater, transport, energy and roads.
Who supports the fund?
Sweden supports the fund.
