Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Basic urban services and institutions are unable to keep pace with the population growth in Pakistan's cities, which has grown 71% over the past 19 years. This has led to a degraded urban environment with poor urban services, unhealthy public spaces, and a shortage of civic amenities. The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has set urban development as a major pillar for economic growth and has requested ADB to support a project to improve the quality of life of residents in the three most populous cities of Abbottabad, Mardan, and Peshawar. The proposed project is included in ADB's Country Operations Business Plan (2018-2020) for Pakistan and will be considered for approval in Q3 2018. The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has selected the above three cities based on extensive stakeholder consultations and rapid urban assessment work, supported by the Cities Development Initiative for Asia and their proximities to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services
ADB will engage 2 international consultants for a total of 5 person-months, and 6 national consultants for a total of 15 person-months, in accordance with ADB's Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated project administration instructions and TA staff instructions. Individual consultants are being recruited as the number of consultants is small and there is no shared output required. The use of output-based contracts will be considered, in line with Midterm Review of Strategy 2020 Action Plan 2.9.2 and 2.10.2.
