August 10, 2016 | India | Water and Other Urban Infrastructure and Services | Validation of Project/Program Completion Report

This project is Tranche 1 of the North Karnataka Urban Sector Investment Program, a multitranche financing facility (MFF) comprising four tranches. The urban sector and tourism investment proposals of the government’s overall investment plan for North Karnataka were recognized as priority sectors and were allocated 33% ($862 million) of the total investment plan, including an Asian Development Bank (ADB) contribution of $270 million in the MFF. The planned impact of the MFF was improvement in the people’s quality of life in 25 urban local bodies (ULBs) by providing basic urban infrastructure, which is particularly lacking in North Karnataka compared to the rest of the state. The MFF aimed to increase economic opportunities and growth in these towns, thereby reducing imbalances in the state. Tranche 1 was designed primarily to support water supply and sanitation infrastructure improvements in three ULBs in the towns of Haveri, Hospet, and Raichur.

People’s Republic of China: Guangdong Energy Efficiency and Environment Improvement Investment Program, Tranche 3 and Multitranche Financing Facility

August 4, 2016 | China | Energy | Validation of Project/Program Completion Report

About three-fourths of Guangdong’s generation capacity was coal-fired, which caused serious air pollution and acid rain. Also, ambient air quality started to fail in meeting national air quality standards. The energy intensity of Guangdong’s economy was also relatively high by international standards at 3.4 times the average of member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Improvements in energy efficiency in Guangdong were expected to lower energy consumption and the need for additional power generation capacity, thus saving energy, reducing adverse environmental impacts, relieving energy shortages, and improving energy security.

The multitranche financing facility investment program’s expected impact was an improvement in energy security and environmental conditions in Guangdong province.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Highly Successful.
