|Description||The Bangalore Cluster City Development Investment Program (the Program) aims to increase the city's competitiveness, in a way that also promotes inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth. The program will provide physical and non-physical investment in selected clusters to: (i) improve regional and metropolitan planning, (ii) upgrade key economic and social infrastructure, and (iii) enhance urban governance (including service delivery) to create a better business and investment climate. The Program proposes to achieve the above objectives by: (i) ensuring that multi-stakeholder demand-based (cluster) infrastructure development is preceded by metropolitan economic and sector planning, (ii) promoting sectoral coordination and convergence, and (iii) establishing a strong partnership between public and private sectors.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The Program will seek to use a number of innovative financing, capacity development, and reform instruments. The Bangalore Metropolitan Region has been selected for support under the program based on (i) its potential to achieve enhanced growth, productivity and employment; (ii) prevalent enabling environment for accelerated industrialization; (iii) the State's reform willingness and exemplary initiatives; and (iv) opportunity for development and testing of new urban development models and potential for replicability in Karnataka and India.
The investment program will be supported through a multitranche financing facility (MFF). The MFF is particularly well suited for this investment as it is the most effective modality to (i) maximize and measure project results in individual localized geographical areas; (ii) enable feedback, learning and incorporation of lessons in subsequent tranches; and (iii) blend capacity development and infrastructure provision. The MFF will enable the client to (i) programmatically implement a structured roadmap that takes into consideration the city's economic, social, and environmental needs; and (ii) blend instruments that optimize private and public interventions and leverage multi-stakeholder finance.
