|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The Government of India initiated the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in 2005 to develop urban infrastructure and basic urban services on a fast-track basis and to ensure improved governance and finances for sustainable urban service delivery in 63 cities in India. JNNURM comprises of two sub-mission: (i) urban infrastructure and governance, and (ii) basic services to the urban poor.
The first component is being implemented by the Ministry of Urban Development, and ADB has been providing technical support for the effective implementation of the first component, which has been widely appreciated by the Government. The second component-Basic Services to the Urban Poor-is implemented by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MHUPA). The focus of the second component of JNNURM is to improve slums through integrated provision of shelter, basic infrastructure and services, and other civic amenities and consist of seven point charter: affordable housing for the poor; permanent tenure for the slum dwellers; water supply for the poor; sanitation for the poor; education for the poor; health for the poor; and social security.
MHUPA has requested ADB's technical assistance to build project development capacities for expanding inclusive city development. The current investments targeted to improve living conditions of the urban poor are limited. A significant way to accelerate further investments for inclusive cities is to develop good projects that mainstream all aspects of inclusive city development.
The ADB's Country Strategy and Program Update 2006-2008 lays emphasis on supporting urban infrastructure development, especially water supply and sewerage, with targeted poverty reduction components and strong focus on municipal reforms and capacity building. The proposed TA has close linkage to ADB's Country Strategy for urban infrastructure development and poverty reduction.
|Impact||Inclusive urban development leading to improvement in the status of the urban poor|
|Description of Outcome||Capacities for inclusive urban development of Indian cities enhanced at city and state levels|
|Progress Toward Outcome||Since there is a significant synergy between affordable housing development (TA 7148-IND) and urban transport development (TA 7750-IND), which is commonly referred to as transit-oriented development (TOD)/value capture, a joint workshop for the two TAs was organized on 24-25 May 2012 in Jodhpur, which is the city both teams looked into as a practical example for possible adoption of TOD. One suggestion that came out of the workshop was the formalation of new projects based on the concept of (mass) transit-oriented development (TOD)/value capture. The TA team also participated in the "Inclusive Urban Planning" conference on 18-19 February 2013 in New Delhi at the invitation of the EA, MHUPA, and presented two discussion papers based on the study findings.|
|Description of Project Outputs||
Component 1-Develop Toolkit: Develop framework and toolkits for designing inclusive urban development projects for Indian cities. The toolkit would help in enabling systematic approach for cities and states and other interested parties to develop detailed project reports relating to integrated inclusive urban development program
Component 2-Capacity building: Building of state and city level stakeholders in inclusive urban development by supporting visits to best practices, and training programs.
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||
ADB is currently reviewing the Draft Final Report submitted by consulting team.
The two papers that the TA team presented at the "Inclusive Urban Planning" conference are expected to be published as a part of the book entitled "State of the Urban Poor" report.
