Description A PDA grant for $3 million will support the detailed engineering design for the project and external financial audit of the PDA account. The PDA is not listed in the country operations business plan for 2015 2017 and will follow approval and reporting procedures laid out for PDA financing not listed in the current year's plan. The PDA is proposed to be financed from ADB's Special Funds resources and is the first PDA grant for the project.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The PDA will fund (i) the engineering consultant recruited to prepare the detailed design and advance procurement actions of the project, and (ii) the financial audit firm required for auditing the use of the PDA. The PDA will allow the government to complete the detailed engineering design before the proposed project become effective. Once the ensuing financing becomes effective, the civil works contract will be either almost ready to be awarded or already awarded. The PDA will allow about 2 years of time saving from the grant effectiveness to contractor mobilization during the initial phase of implementation.
Impact Enhanced regional connectivity and trade via CAREC Corridors 1 and 3 connector road.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Improved efficiency and safer movement of goods and people on the connector road between CAREC Corridors 1 and 3.
