Project targets should be achievable. Cost estimates should be based on thorough and professional assessments as part of a feasibility study, instead of aspirational or subjective considerations alone.
Measures ensuring government commitment to implement institutional development and provide counterpart funds should be carefully reviewed and tied to the release of funds.
Detailed design engineers and supervision and implementation consultants should be recruited in advance of project approval, to increase project readiness. The project implementation schedule should be realistic.
Delayed payments to contractors adversely affect implementation. ADB and the government should work together to ensure timely disbursements.
