Toolkits & Manuals - Project Planning & Development

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved an advisory Technical Assistance (TA) of US $ 2 Million for Capacity Development for the NCRPB in the area of planning and financing of urban infrastructure and to impart necessary skills to conceive, design, develop, appraise and implement good quality infrastructure projects for planned development of the NCR. The TA will help address institutional and implementation issues pertaining to accelerating urban infrastructure development in the NCR and is likely to lead to more investment in water supply, sewerage, solid waste management, and urban mass transport. It is also expected to improve efficiencies in the NCR. More investment and improved efficiencies will have a positive impact on basic urban services and thus a direct positive impact on the quality of life of the urban poor and on the urban environment.

The TA project has been divided in three broad components viz. Component A: Business Process Reengineering & Skills Development for NCRPB; Component B: Skills and Process Improvements in Project Preparation by the Implementing Agencies; and Component C: Urban and Regional Planning. The National Capital Region Planning Board is the executing agency for the project and a Steering Committee headed by the Member Secretary, NCRPB has been set up in the Board for monitoring various activities under the project. The TA programme will deliver the following outputs:

  • Preparation of standard procedure manuals/toolkits for identifying projects and preparing DPRs and development of a user friendly website for the implementing agencies that will include various manuals and guidelines for preparing good quality DPRs;
  • Systems, procedures, and manuals in such areas as project appraisal, credit appraisal, portfolio management, risk management and treasury operations, resource mobilization; and
