Project Description

This project finances technical assistance for urban development of future cities in Asia and the Pacific, including planning and research.

The impact will be improved planning for integrated urban development for future cities in Asia and the Pacific, which aligns with ADB's Urban Operational Plan, Strategy 2020, and Midterm Review of Strategy 2020. The outcome will be that selected cities are engaged in an integrated approach towards becoming more livable.

The TA will identify and conduct prefeasibility on new projects for each selected city based on an integrated growth management approach. Municipalities will be engaged in
understanding, identifying, and sharing best practice pathways towards future livable cities, and will be supported by COEs, additional cross-sector TA support, and partnerships with other cities. Identified projects will be integrated with ADB’s pipeline and city growth management approaches and be matched with appropriate project funding modalities for further planning and implementation. Action learning and practice will inform the development of knowledge products that can be shared between future cities and used for engagement with additional cities.

Investment Description
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB)
