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.


The CRDP II will support priority infrastructure investment to stimulate urban development and economic growth in the selected city regions of Dhaka and Khulna to fill the urban infrastructure gap. In Dhaka city region, CRDP II will improve urban connectivity in line with the recommendations of the Dhaka Structure Plan. In Khulna city region, CRDP II will support drainage, and sewerage and solid waste management. Furthermore, CRDP II will support the development of a physical and spatial plan of Khulna city region, similar to the plan prepared for Dhaka region under CRDP I. It will support strengthening of RAJUK and Khulna Development Authority for developing climate resilient urban planning involving efficient land use, and road network. It will also support the strengthening of the coordination mechanisms of various agencies involved in delivering climate- and disaster-resilient, inclusive, and environmentally sensitive infrastructure and basic services in these two city regions.


The City Region Development Project II (CRDP II) will build upon the achievements and lessons learned from the City Region Development Project I (CRDP I) to promote inclusive and environmentally sustainable economic growth in two city regions along Bangladesh's Southwest Economic Corridor (SWEC), which is one of the promising economic corridors of Bangladesh. Recognizing the economic potential of SWEC, the Government of Bangladesh has given high priority to develop the city regions of Dhaka and Khulna.


Growth potential enhanced, and climate resilience improved (Bangladesh Seventh Five-Year Plan, FY2016 FY2020)

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at:
