Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy n/A
Impact Expected impact of the RETA is "increased capacity to manage and provide urban water and sanitation services in six South Asian Countries (Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, and Maldives)".
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Expected outcome of the RETA is to establish a sustainable capacity building/ training program on water and sanitation management and governance, in partnership with K-Water.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

Expected outputs and time frame: The RETA aims to (i) explore and assess the existing water and sanitation (WSS) training programs in K-water, (ii) package a structured series of training program on WSS management and governance, targeting WSS operators/organizations as a unit of trainee, and (iii) establish modularized training courses involving South Asian water sector clients of ADB. Innovative features of the training program are on its design for WSS operator as an entity, rather than capacity building for individual participants or by technical sub-topics. The RETA will be implemented during 1.5 calendar year period, in three folds.

Component I (during the first 3 calendar months). The proposed RETA will explore existing training programs in K-Water to assess its suitability to provide training toward WSS operators/organizations as target units.

Component II. (12 calendar months, intermittently) Training framework and modules are implemented over one year period for six South Asian countries.

Component III. (3-5 months of implementation at the end) will be largely devoted for refining the training program based on the feed back from the recipient WSS organization.
