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.
