Bangladesh: Third Urban Governance and Infrastructure Improvement (Sector) Project
The PPTA will carry out due diligence on technical, economic, financial, governance, poverty and social, and safeguards for the ensuing loan. Capacity building of target pourashavas is an integral part of project preparation, without which the implementation of the project may face significant start-up delays.

|Description||The PPTA will carry out due diligence on technical, economic, financial, governance, poverty and social, and safeguards for the ensuing loan. Capacity building of target pourashavas is an integral part of project preparation, without which the implementation of the project may face significant start-up delays.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||Although the design and modality of the project is proven effective from the experience of earlier phases, a project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) is needed to make necessary adjustments for more efficient execution of the project and improvements to enhance effectiveness and impacts of the project.|

|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||
Stakeholders include general citizens, poor and vulnerable communities, and businesses in target pourashavas and those in areas where the proposed infrastructure is located. Government, community groups, civil society organizations working in the project location will be fully consulted. Representatives of the civil societies will be formal members of the citizens' forums at ward and pourashava levels as in earlier phases.
Performance criteria to measure governance reform include citizen participation and integration of the urban poor. More specifically, the poor and excluded groups will be represented in the WLCCs and TLCCs, which are formal consultative bodies in pourashavas. Preparation of PRAP and own budget allocation to the implementation of PRAP is a prerequisite for pourashavas to receive capital investment support under the project.
Participation of citizens including the poor and excluded is incorporated in a systemic way in the earlier phases of the project, and is proven to be effective. The same approach will be maintained. Subprojects in slum areas, mainly small civil works, are implemented by the slum improvement committees (SICs) including procurement of materials and community labors/workers. The roles and contributions of SICs will be further strengthened by ensuring more resources and capacity development.
|During Project Implementation||To be prepared under the PPTA|
|Consulting Services||The TA will require about 169 person-months of consulting services (25 international and 144 national). A team of consultants will be recruited through a firm under one package using the quality- and cost-based method of selection with a quality-cost ratio of 90:10 in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). This ratio is justified due to the complex nature of the assignment involving wide range of expertise and a large number of municipalities. Full technical proposal will be used for the selection of a firm. In addition, a small number of individual consultants may be engaged to enhance project readiness and expedite project implementation, on an as-needed basis.|
