PROJECT OBJECTIVE

HLT includes new and advanced technologies or innovative solutions that can reduce the life cycle cost of infrastructure, lower operation and maintenance cost, and increase durability. Modern and advanced equipment can improve efficiency and productivity, thereby saving resources. The adoption of innovative construction methods and technologies can minimize negative environmental and social impacts. Innovative approaches and a combination of different technologies can also improve the delivery of social services. The TA cluster will create a platform for novel engagement with technology providers to enable HLT adoptions in collaboration with DMC agencies. The TA cluster will build the capacity of DMC counterparts to design projects with HLT applications, understand the HLT market in specific sectors, assess HLT ecosystem readiness and leverage ADB's sector, thematic and DMC specific knowledge.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) cluster will support developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in effectively identifying high-level technology (HLT) solutions for development projects. The TA cluster will enable collaborations with technology providers from the public and private sectors, academia, and research institutes, while building capacity in DMCs to develop sustainable projects and programs with HLT applications. In line with the objective, eligibility criteria, and scope of the High-Level Technology Fund, the TA cluster will support DMC's decisions to introduce HLT into projects and provide guidance on how to proceed to project preparation and due diligence. Under the TA cluster, technology providers will be invited to offer proposals on HLT prefeasibility studies and innovative solutions to address specific development challenges.
