Developing the CAREC Water Pillar


The technical assistance (TA) will support the development of the CAREC water pillar, with an emphasis on economic aspects and sustainable financing of water resources management. The TA is aligned with ADB's Strategy 2030, particularly for the operational priorities that involve (i) tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability; and (ii) fostering regional cooperation and integration. The proposed initiatives developed under the CAREC water pillar will be suitable for broader application to the entire CAREC region.

Expected Outcome

Scope for the CAREC water pillar framework developed.
