For example, the proposed project will finance initial operation and maintenance (O&M) of physical infrastructure to ensure sustainability until the policy reforms are in place. Similarly, the capacities of staff will be developed by the private operators during initial 5- 10 years of O&M phase for subsequent sustainable delivery of the urban services.
