Description The TA responds to the needs of countries in Asian Development Bank (ADB)'s South Asia Department (SARD) for innovative and cross-cutting solutions to address challenges posed by the remaining infrastructure deficit, rapid pace of urbanization, and climate change
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The region still needs substantial resources to fill infrastructure deficits especially in lagging areas. Many still have no access to safe drinking water and lack basic sanitation. SARD countries still experience power outages which restrain economic growth and underdeveloped transportation networks restrict the flow of people, goods, and services. Rehabilitation and better management and maintenance of infrastructure assets are essential. All of these need substantial financial resources of which participation from the private sector will be a key component, as well as knowledge. Promoting innovative technology into infrastructure and public services will reduce life-cycle costs and increase durability, improve the efficiency and quality of services, and minimize negative environmental and social impacts.
Impact Efficient infrastructure development and provision of quality public service by SARD DMCs
Outcome Pipeline of projects with innovative technology and cross-cutting solutions increased
Outputs

Analytical studies on innovative technologies and cross-cutting solutions on areas of priority for SARD countries prepared

Knowledge on innovative and cross-cutting solutions enhanced
