Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the Bank’s website, the proposed Uttarakhand Livability and Resilience Improvement Project (ULRIP) envision making urban areas more livable, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable in Haldwani, and providing safe, efficient, and climate-resilient water supply services in four towns (Champawat, Kichha, Kotdwar, and Tanakpur) in Uttarakhand. In Haldwani, it will promote (i) increased urban mobility by decongesting critical areas with road network improvement, including the introduction of the first in-city environmentally sustainable public transportation system and intelligent traffic management system; (ii) improved drainage to reduce urban floods and improve public health; and (iii) integrated urban facilities, including an administrative building and bus terminus. ULRIP aims to provide universal and equitable access to water supply services, which will complement the Government of Uttarakhand's efforts in responding to national flagship programs, such as the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).
