Project Description

The proposed project aims to, accordint to the bank document, "support the Water and Power Development Authority to review the existing data and studies, to identify essential design and information gaps, and determine the scope and implementation arrangements for the additional investigations and other engineering, social, and environmental analytical works that are necessary to ensure adequate due diligence. The SS-KSTA is likely to result in the comprehensive proposal for a subsequent transaction TA (TRTA) to undertake any recommended due diligence works, to confirm the viability of the project for ADB financing and to provide inputs into the development of a project concept paper, should the proposed project be considered suitable for ADB financing. As the proposed TA will support additional upstream investigation work before processing a TRTA, a KSTA would be an ideal vehicle."
