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.


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.

  • Output 1: Project implementation readiness for ensuing projects improved. The facility will support project preparation, design activities, and institutional strengthening for investments to be financed under one or more ensuing ADB-financed projects, including the Naryn Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Development Program the country's first results-based lending operation planned for 2019 approval.
  • Output 2: New technology, innovation, or improvement in design standards pilot-tested. The facility will support pilot-testing advanced technologies and management approaches to reduce life-cycle costs, improve service efficiency and quality, and minimize negative environmental and social impacts. Development of road asset management is an example of a new technology or management approaches activity under the facility.
  • Output 3: Project efficiency and sustainability enhanced. The facility will enhance project efficiency and sustainability, including capacity and implementation support for ongoing projects, post-disaster rehabilitation, O&M;, and upgrading of completed infrastructure investments to conform with up-to-date performance standards.

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.

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:
