An online inception mission was held on 28 September 2022 to discuss and agree on the updated implementation schedule, TA scope, key activities, expected deliverables, milestone dates of the deliverables. The inception report was submitted in September 2022, the field survey completed in June 2023 and the draft technical reports in July 2023. The final technical reports and the final midterm report are being prepared. Additional time is required to fully complete and analyze the field surveys which were delayed and limited by lockdowns caused by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in the target cities. A one-year extension of the TA completion date is proposed and the Government concurrence is awaited.
