Description The Cluster Technical Assistance (C-TA) subproject would support climate- and disaster resilient smart cities projects in two key areas: (i) conduct advanced climate risk and vulnerability assessments, resulting in integrated climate change-resilient urban plans, and strategic and actionable recommendations to strengthen urban climate change resilience of urban infrastructure and services (drinking water supply, sewage collection, wastewater treatment, drainage, sustainable urban transport, energy efficiency, etc.); and (ii) provide technical support to select state government agencies and cities in the implementation of the national urban flagship programs, including identification of smart, innovative and sustainable urban management projects, and support for institutional and capacity strengthening measures, including facilitation of PPPs, some of which would be considered under an ADB investment program and/or financing through a line of credit being established by ADB with one of the financial intermediaries.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB's urban program focuses on expanding the coverage, quality, and continuity of inclusive basic services while embracing the principles of resilience and efficiency. The TA promotes convergence with government's flagship Smart Cities Mission, and will provide provide direction to the urban local bodies in developing well-planned cities which are livable and sustainable, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and resilient to climate-change-related risks. The TA builds from ADB's country partnership strategy, 2013 -2017 for India, which supports (i) energy efficiency, (ii) sustainable transport systems, and (iii) efficient and sustainable water management, including advice on policy and institutional reforms.
