Description The program will develop priority water supply, sewage and drainage infrastructure in at least 10 cities located within strategic industrial corridors of Tamil Nadu. It will support innovative pilots, including India's first solar-powered sewage treatment plant (STP) to offset greenhouse gas emissions and enhance operational efficiency; strengthen urban governance; and build capacity of state and local institutions to enhance services delivery, environmental sustainability, and climate resilience.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Tamil Nadu ranks first in urbanization amongst large states in India (48.5% of its population lives in cities, which is projected to increase to 67% in 2030) and is the second largest contributor to the country's gross domestic product. Despite being a leader in many areas of manufacturing and information technology enabled services, managing rapid urbanization will be vital to sustaining its economic growth, alleviating poverty, and maintaining urban livability. Key challenges include: (i) acute infrastructure deficits with increasing demands from rapid urbanization; (ii) expanding slum populations; (iii) pollution of waterways; (iv) weak institutional capacity to plan and implement projects; and (v) mixed performance in key governance indicators, including local revenue generation, financial management, and municipal administration. Water related disasters such as recurring droughts (once in every 2.5 years) and catastrophic urban floods linked to climate change are aggravated by high water losses in older distribution networks and inadequate drainage systems not adapted to heavier monsoon rains. Addressing these complex challenges requires significant investments and deeper institutional support.
Impact (i)Universal access to basic water and sanitation services achieved (Vision Tamil Nadu 2023) (ii) _World-class_ cities and industrial corridors across the state developed (Vision Tamil Nadu 2023); and (iii)Water security, reduced vulnerability to climate change in urban areas, and enhanced share of renewable energy achieved (Tamil Nadu Sustainable Water Security Mission, State Action Plan on Climate Change)

One agency will be recruited to support CMA for capacity building and urban reforms, participation and awareness consultant will support implementation of incentivized reform, capacity building and participation activities.

Each CMSC will require an estimated 2878 person-months national experts and will be responsible for the contract management and construction supervision, data collection and assessment, assisting ULBs to evaluate bids, supervising construction, monitoring and reporting to PMU on progress and compliances, assisting in the disbursement of funds and ensuring safeguard compliance in line with ADB requirements.

A governance improvement and awareness consultant (GIAC) will be recruited to assist the CMA (which is the implementing agency for governance and capacity building component and has administrative control over the ULBs) to support in implementing community participation, gender and social inclusion action plan, public awareness campaigns and incentivized governance improvement component

The consultants will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a standard quality: cost ratio of 90:10. Individual consultants will be recruited using a bio-data technical proposal

Procurement Procurement of civil works and goods including consulting services will follow ADB s Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time). The procurement of consultants will follow ADB s Guidelines on the use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). A procurement capacity assessment concluded the overall procurement risk for the project is moderate. The TNUIFSL has extensive experience in development partner-supported procurement of large works and will provide advisory support to ULBs and the CMA.
