Bangladesh: Results of ADB-Supported Operations, 2010-2018

Results achieved are aggregate amounts of outputs and outcomes from operations reported in project completion reports and extended annual review reports circulated for the year.

Energy

 974,284 tCO2 equivalent per year in greenhouse gas emission reduction

974,284 tCO2: The avoided CO2 equivalent emission as a result of a clean energy project or component of a project. Projects with CO2 emission reduction include renewable energy generation, energy efficiency projects in supply and demand side, and use of cleaner fuels such as natural gas in place of coal or oil.

 120 TWH equivalent per year of energy saved

120 TWH: Annual energy savings is the sum of electricity and fuel savings, after converting fuel savings in terrajoules to terawatt-hour equivalent per year. Energy saved is the energy savings resulting from a project or component of a project that involves efficiency improvements in energy use.

 1,811,530 new households connected to electricity

1,811,530: Number of new households given electricity connection.

 1,591 MW installed energy generation capacity

1,591 MW: Aggregated additional capacity in megawatts (MW) resulting from generation projects using conventional and renewable energy sources.

 1,244 kilometers transmission lines installed or upgraded

1,244 kilometers: Length of power, gas, and oil transmission lines (ground distance in kilometers). For power transmission lines, this should be the simple distance from tower A to tower B and not the circuit-kilometer.

 13,384 kilometers distribution lines installed or upgraded

13,384: Length of the distribution network of lines or pipes installed and/or upgraded in kilometers, aggregating: (i) power distribution lines installed or upgraded, generally at 110 kilovolts or lower; (ii) district heating network pipes installed or upgraded; and (iii) urban gas supply network pipes installed or upgraded.

Transport

 3,626,791 average daily vehicle-kilometers use of roads built or upgraded in the first full year of operation

3,626,791 average daily vehicle-kilometers: Traffic benefiting from built or upgraded roads in the year after project completion. Vehicles are buses, trucks, minivans, cars, motorcycles, and other motorized means of conveyance, depending on the country and location. Daily vehicle-kilometers is to be calculated by adding all distances in kilometers traveled by all types of vehicles in a day on roads built or upgraded.

 7,184 kilometers roads built or upgraded

7,184 kilometers: Length of expressways and national highways (i.e., fully access-controlled roadways) and provincial, district, and rural road networks (i.e., roads without full access control) built or upgraded, expressed in kilometers.

 90 kilometers expressways and national highways built or upgraded

90 kilometers: Expressways and national highways built or upgraded (kilometers)

 7,092 kilometers provincial, district, and rural roads built or upgraded

7,092 kilometers: Provincial, district, and rural road networks built or upgraded (kilometers)

Water

 82,141 households with new or improved water supply

82,141: All additional households that benefit from projects offering piped or non-piped water supply systems that are of a higher order than the system that the households used before (non-piped supply may include standpipes), and households that are already connected to a piped system but are provided with improved service, e.g., longer hours of service and/or increased pressure.

 5,560 households with new or improved sanitation

5,560: All additional households that benefit from projects offering a variety of sanitation systems to households that either did not benefit from sanitation systems before or benefit from systems of lesser order, and households that are already benefiting from sanitation services but are provided with improved service, e.g., sewer connection, septic tank, pour-flush, simple pit latrine, or ventilated improved pit latrine.

 1,040 kilometers water supply pipes installed or upgraded

1,040 kilometers: All sizes of new and repaired or upgraded pipes intended to transport water for urban water use for domestic and nonagricultural business purposes, expressed as their aggregate length in the network, irrespective of pipe diameter, comprising mains as well as reticulation pipes.

 258,467 hectares land improved through irrigation, drainage and/or flood management

258,467 hectares: Land area improved through any new or improved: (i) irrigation, (ii) drainage services, and (iii) flood management works.

 1,155,162 households with reduced flood risk

1,155,162: Number of rural and urban households protected from flood risks through (i) urban projects that include flood management components, (ii) irrigation and water resources development projects that include flood management components, and (iii) stand-alone flood management projects.

Finance

 1,126,053 microfinance loan accounts opened / end borrowers reached

1,126,053: The number of end borrowers; or, if not available, the number or estimate of microfinance loan accounts opened (regardless of amount in currency) over the course of the project. All those reached by microfinance lending or saving group activities of the project are counted, including participants in self-help groups. The definition of microfinance follows country conventions.

 47,077 small and medium-sized enterprise loan accounts opened or end borrowers reached

47,077: Preferably number of end borrowers, but if not available, the number of small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) loan accounts opened (regardless of amount) over the course of the project. The calculation does not include equity operations for SMEs. The definition of SMEs follows the definition generally used in the country of the project.

Education

 18,229,145 students benefiting from new or improved educational facilities

18,229,145: Total number of students benefiting from new or upgraded physical educational facilities.

 35,178,330 students educated and trained under improved quality assurance systems

35,178,330: Total number of students benefiting from improved quality assurance systems under the projects.

 1,200,000 students educated and trained under improved quality assurance systems, TVET

1,200,000: Total number of students benefiting from improved quality assurance systems under the projects (TVET).

 1,607,453 teachers trained with quality or competency standards

1,607,453: Number of teachers trained who are likely to improve teaching practices and support improvements in curriculum, textbooks, or pedagogy.

 5,735 teachers trained with quality or competency standards, TVET

5,735: Number of teachers trained who are likely to improve teaching practices and support improvements in curriculum, textbooks, or pedagogy, as part of technical and vocational education and training (TVET), under the projects.

Regional Cooperation and Integration

 3,504 GWH/year cross-border transmission of electricity

3,504 GWH/year: Cross-border electricity, in GWh, transmitted annually based on PCRs circulated during the year. Achieved outputs of operations with the thematic classification of regional cooperation and integration are counted.

Note: Results achieved are aggregate amounts of outputs and outcomes from operations reported in project completion reports and extended annual review reports circulated for the year.
