The objective of the Integrated Cities and Urban Development Project for West Bank and Gaza is to enhance the capacity of participating urban areas to plan for sustainable urban growth. The project has 2 components. (1) Planning for sustainable urban growth component strengthens the institutional and technical capacity of participating urban areas to plan for sustainable urban growth through, inter alia, the provision of Technical Assistance (TA), goods, and training. (2) Project implementation support and management cost component will finance the training, operating costs, and goods necessary for the technical oversight and implementation support of the proposed project to be performed by a Technical Supervisor (TS), Local Coordinator (LC) for Bethlehem, Hebron, and Nablus areas, and the existing Local Coordinator for the Ramallah-Al Bireh-Bitounia (RAB) Joint Coordination Unit. This component will also finance the management fee of the Municipal Development and Lending Fund (MDLF) that will manage procurement, finance, safeguards, and reporting for the proposed project based on technical inputs from the TS.
