Description

Activity 2 will support ADBs ongoing Naryn Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Development Program (the Naryn Program), which uses the results-based lending (RBL) modality, in the following areas: (i) component 1: recruitment of the independent verification agent (IVA) for the Naryn Program to validate the disbursement linked indicators (DLIs), and (ii) component 2: capacity development of the Naryn Programs executing and implementing agencies to support the overall program implementation and to achieve the program results framework. A consulting firm will be recruited for the IVA, while individual consultants will be engaged for the component 2 (implementation support to the Naryn Program). Activity 2 will also finance the consulting services of an independent external auditor to carry out the Naryn Program audit.

The proposed SEFF subgrant will allow the government to ring-fence resources for strategic service improvements and increase the likelihood to achieve the Naryn Program DLIs, including the financing of the IVA for the Naryn Programs results.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB is expected to improve Naryn Program performance as it will finance additional program implementation services to support Naryn Program systems and processes, promote implementation efficiency, and a greater focus on achieving results (e.g., access to water supply and sanitation services increased) by financing IVA of the Naryn Programs results.
