Nepal: Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women Project

The low status of women in Nepal can be traced to economic, legal, sociocultural, political, and institutional factors—which are interrelated, mutually reinforcing, and centuries old. The condition of women was exacerbated by the country’s caste system, as this defined access to resources and opportunities. The project aimed to improve the socioeconomic conditions of poor rural women through economic empowerment, legal empowerment, social empowerment and institutional strengthening and project management.

India: North Karnataka Urban Sector Investment Program, Tranche 1

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

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.

Bhutan: Strengthening Economic Management Program

The program adopted a two-pronged approach to negotiate the challenges of weak economic management in Bhutan. First, it aimed to improve fiscal management to help the government allocate scarce resources more effectively and efficiently. Second, it aimed to improve monetary management to ensure that interest rate policy better matched the demand and supply of loanable funds, thereby improving liquidity management. This approach was to be reinforced by strengthening the internal and external audit systems to improve the monitoring of public resources and strengthen administrative and financial efficiency and accountability including at the subnational level of government. The program supported policy and institutional improvements in four core areas: (i) fiscal management, (ii) debt management, (iii) monetary and liquidity management, and (iv) internal and external audit operations. Five separately approved ADB technical assistance grants spread over 2010–2012 supported capacity building in these and other related areas.

Uzbekistan: Second Small and Microfinance Development Project

The project aims to increase in microfinance loans to financially viable sub-borrowers (men and women). It also aimed to deliver training to improve the entrepreneurial capacity of sub-borrowers, including women and microcredit organizations. To meet the demand for micro and small enterprise (MSE) credit, the project was designed to catalyze lending to MSEs by working with participating commercial banks. These banks were required to commit to sustainable MSE financing and must meet a set of criteria. To facilitate access to credit by MSEs, the project comprised a $50 million loan to be channeled through the three banks for onlending to viable MSEs, and a technical assistance grant of $600,000 to improve the MSE financing capacity of banks’ and their sub-borrowers’ entrepreneurial skills. To demonstrate their commitment to the MSE sector, these banks were required to match the ADB credit allocation with their own funds.
