|Description||The objective of the proposed multitranche financing facility (MFF) is to improve Pakistan's power transmission infrastructure and management. To achieve this objective, the investment program includes: (i) staged physical investments in the transmission system to increase transmission capacity, improve efficiency and energy security, and evacuate additional sources of power; and (ii) nonphysical investments to support institutional efficiency, cost recovery, competition, transparency and good governance within the sector.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
A reliable and sustainable energy sector is essential to the economic growth and wellbeing of Pakistan. Load shedding has become common and severe, leading to civil strife and factory closures. Over one-third of the population does not have access to grid electricity which lessens opportunities for inclusive growth. Chronic power shortages are estimated to have reduced gross domestic product (GDP) growth by at least 2% in 2012 and 2013, and are considered the major cause of the slowdown in large-scale manufacturing, which grew at only 1.1% in fiscal year (FY) 2012 and 4.1% in FY2013.
This proposed investment program will continue to support NTDC to improve power transmission infrastructure and management in Pakistan by building on the work completed under the Power Transmission Enhancement Investment Program (MFF-0007).
Energy market transparency and efficiency improved
Transmission infrastructure and management improved.
