Project Description
DESCRIPTION The project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) is needed for preparing the investment program and conducting technical, economic, financial, governance, safeguards, gender and social due diligence for the ensuing multi-tranche financing facility (MFF). PROJECT RATIONALE AND LINKAGE TO COUNTRY/REGIONAL STRATEGY Urban centers are driving economic growth in India. More than 30% of India's current population lives in urban areas and contributes 63% of India's gross domestic product (Census 2011). These figures are expected to increase to 40% and 75%, respectively, by 2030. While high urbanization can yield higher productivity and better living standards, Indian cities face persistent development challenges: high urban poverty (35%), environmental and public health hazards, poor hygiene and sanitation behaviors, high water losses (up to 60%) with limited access to 24x7 supply, extensive flooding, unmet energy demands, infrastructure deficits, and weak governance and institutions. Integrated and effective urban development is needed to provide sustainable and affordable basic services. There is an enormous potential to scale up good practices in urban planning and infrastructure development, improve behaviors in hygiene and sanitation, and strengthen institutions to improve living standards for all urban residents. CONSULTING SERVICES The TA will require about 80 person-months of consulting services (8 international and 72 national) (Table A3.3). ADB will recruit consultants on an individual basis. All consultants will be recruited in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). Lump sum payments/output-based contracts will be considered for consulting services under the TA. PROCUREMENT n/a

If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
