Philippines: Infrastructure Preparation and Innovation Facility

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50288-001 Status: Active

A technical assistance loan is proposed as the financing modality. The Project will directly support DPWH and DOTr to deliver more effective and more innovative infrastructure projects. The key benefits include: (i) effective identification, analysis, and planning for infrastructure gaps, especially roads, urban transport, urban water, sanitation, and flood management; (ii) addressing critical constraints such as resettlement processes and inadequate access to international knowledge, best practices, innovation, and technology; and (iii) implementation management of sophisticated public infrastructure projects with international expertise to supplement national expertise and resources. The Project will also help address key operational areas for ADB through gap analysis and support for country system development in key areas such as: (i) land acquisition; (ii) procurement; and (iii) start-up delays.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The current administration under the Ten-Point Socioeconomic Agenda aims to ramp up public infrastructure projects such as national roads, expressways, bridges, airports, subways, and railways. Public spending on infrastructure is expected to reach 7% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2022 or approximately $14.5 billion annually, from the current level of 3.4% of GDP in 2016. To materialize the goals of infrastructure investment, the government requested the Project from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help the two key agencies responsible for national public infrastructure projects, namely DPWH and DOTr, conduct pre-investment activities which will in turn help accelerate the Investment Coordination Committee review and approval process and ensure timely, high-quality procurement and implementation.

To enhance national capacity, additional access to international sources of innovation, expertise, advice, and best practices would enable DPWH and DOTr to incorporate expertise and innovation in project formulation and implementation. An ADB-funded Project and its international procurement systems would facilitate DPWH and DOTr access to required specific technologies, international expertise, and innovation, complementing and building on nationally available expertise. The Project will help DPWH and DOTr to more effectively execute and implement public infrastructure projects by accelerating the due diligence stages, detailed engineering designs, and the bidding process preparation.

The Project is included in the Country Operations and Business Plan 2017 2019. It contributes to the inclusive economic growth and environmentally-sustainable growth agenda of the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020.
