|Description||The transaction technical assistance (TA) facility supports its Southeast Asia DMCs to improve urban services through technical, policy, and capacity development support for projects and investment programs in the urban development and water sectors.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The TA combines project design, project administration, and knowledge sharing. It is expected to result in a better-performing urban development and water portfolio in Southeast Asia than would have been achieved through project-specific TA because of improved (i) quality and consistency of urban solutions, (ii) response time by immediately responding to DMC needs, (iii) quality of outputs through efficient delivery systems, (iv) sector assessment and policy support, and (v) knowledge sharing across the region.
The TA will deliver the following outputs: (i) improved planning, project design, and readiness (output 1); (ii) improved DMC staff capacity in project administration and urban service delivery (output 2); (iii) improved knowledge management and sharing among Southeast Asia DMCs (output 3); and (iv) improved planning, service delivery, and financial management systems to test proof of concepts for advanced technology interventions for future scalability and replication (output 4)
The TA facility is in line with the findings and recommendations of the midterm review of ADB's Strategy 2020, and will increase (i) optimization of ADB resource use, including by more effectively prioritizing TA resource allocation and improving project design quality; (ii) project implementation effectiveness by reducing delays in project implementation, promoting cost-efficient procurement of services, and optimizing the value addition of consultant services; and (iii) administrative cost-effectiveness.
