Regional: Scaling Up Private Sector Participation in the Infrastructure Sector in the Central and West Asia Region

Sovereign Project | 54148-001

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the development of a scalable pipeline of infrastructure projects that can attract private sector investments and generate efficiency gains through (i) the screening of new and existing projects in the deal pipelines developed by the developing member country (DMC) governments and their public sector agencies (PSAs); and (ii) the provision of capacity building-related assistance, including knowledge sharing and training events in the Central and West Asia (CWA) region. The TA will also help develop credible concepts for the (i) introduction and/or strengthening of sustainable and integrated financing solutions, and (ii) deployment of efficient and responsive Asian Development Bank (ADB) transaction support to augment public -private partnerships (PPPs) and private sector participation (PSP) for the delivery of infrastructure projects in the CWA region.

Description The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the development of a scalable pipeline of infrastructure projects that can attract private sector investments and generate efficiency gains through (i) the screening of new and existing projects in the deal pipelines developed by the developing member country (DMC) governments and their public sector agencies (PSAs); and (ii) the provision of capacity building-related assistance, including knowledge sharing and training events in the Central and West Asia (CWA) region. The TA will also help develop credible concepts for the (i) introduction and/or strengthening of sustainable and integrated financing solutions, and (ii) deployment of efficient and responsive Asian Development Bank (ADB) transaction support to augment public -private partnerships (PPPs) and private sector participation (PSP) for the delivery of infrastructure projects in the CWA region.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The TA responds directly to ADB''s Strategy 2030, which identifies private sector operations, including PPPs, and strengthening of ADB''s knowledge services as key operational priorities. The TA is also consistent with ADB''s Public -Private Partnership Operational Plan 2012- 2020, which requires ADB''s regional departments to assume a leadership role in advocating PPPs within DMCs.
