Bangladesh: Dhaka Clean Fuel Project

Evaluation Document | 18 December 2013

Validates the completion report's assessment of the project which aims to reduce urban vehicle pollution problems in Dhaka and other metropolitan area of Bangladesh. IED overall assessment: Successful

Air pollution became a serious public health problem in Dhaka and other major urban cities in Bangladesh. Vehicles were the foremost source of urban pollution. The main arterial roadways had high levels of ambient pollutants due to traffic density, poor traffic flow, and poor maintenance of vehicles. The major pollutants were suspended particulate matter (SPM), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and airborne lead. Thus, the project was formulated to create the initial infrastructure for supplying compressed natural gas fuel in Dhaka and establishing the initial critical number of compressed natural gas -fueled vehicles.

This report validates the completion report's assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Successful
