Under this project ADB is providing 10 million USD to Kyrgyzstan with the purpose to provide facilities for a series of small-value activities to support and complement larger projects financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in the country. In particular, the facility will fund:
(i) project preparatory support for design and procurement readiness of ensuing projects;
(ii) small pilot projects to demonstrate new technologies, international standards, and management approaches for potential scale-up under ensuing projects;
(iii) project implementation support for ongoing ADB projects to ensure the efficient delivery of project outcomes; and
(iv) capacity building and supplemental support for completed ADB projects in operation and maintenance (O&M;), asset management, facility upgrading to meet critical needs, and post-disaster rehabilitation assistance.
Activities under the facility will improve the efficiency, sustainability, responsiveness, and readiness of ADB-financed operations. They will contribute to the achievement of the outputs and outcomes of the linked ADB-financed projects. Each activity will be linked to a planned, ongoing, or completed ADB-financed project. Under the current CPS, priority sectors are agriculture, natural resources, and rural development; education; energy; public sector management; transport; and water and other urban infrastructure and services.
Outputs and outcomes of the project:
The following outputs will contribute to the achievement of the outputs and outcomes of the linked ADB-financed projects.
The first activity to be financed under the facility and under Output 3 will enhance the sustainability of a completed ADB-financed investment in urban water project. It will support the physical upgrades of the chlorine neutralization unit at the Osh-Plotina water treatment plant, completed in September 2016 under the Emergency Assistance for Recovery and Construction project. The unit will be upgraded to a higher international standard and provide 400,000 people with access to safe and reliable water supply.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. 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.
