Implementing Agency / Fund Manager Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW)
Application Procedure KfW’s project cycle is as follows:
  1. The German Government formulates country strategies which usually consist of 3 focal areas in each partner country. KfW cannot finance anything outside the scope of these country strategies.
  2. With regards to project procurement, ideally a city approaches KfW with a project proposal. Often, KfW identifies projects during missions or will send out a fact finding mission to identify needs and develop new projects. More recently, CDIA will also approach them with project proposals.
  3. Once a project idea is formulated, a (pre-) feasibility study financed with grant fundsis conducted. If the feasibility is confirmed, they propose the project to the German Government. At the same time, the city or partners in the country initiate their own internal approval procedures. If all sides agree, funds for the projects are pledged in bi-lateral government negotiations.
  4. After that, KfW appraises the project and sends an appraisal report to the German Government. If this is positive, they enter into loan negotiations. They have different grant and loan products depending on the financial strength of the country that they lend to. Then consulting services are procured and implementation begins.
  5. Some projects are jointly implemented with GTZ who take care of technical assistance at national and local levels. However, KfW also has grant funds available to train partners. A full project cycle usually takes 5 years.

Implementing Agency / Fund Manager Cities Development Initiative for Asia (ADB,BMZ,SIDA,BMF,Shanghai Municipal Corporation)
Application Procedure Local governments of eligible cities will develop their own request for CDIA support (which the CDIA Core Management Team (CMT) may facilitate) and must be committed to cost-sharing principles. To qualify for CDIA support, cities will be expected to submit an application indicating that they have:
  • Prepared and adopted an urban development strategy and/or integrated urban development plan;
  • A demonstrable intent to address social and environmental issues in infrastructure provision;
  • demonstrated commitment of local government through pledging their own contributions (indicatively about 20 % of total CDIA support costs);
  • Demonstrable in-principle central/state level support for the development of an urban infrastructure projects portfolio and its financing, and for the assistance application to the CDIA CMT/ Secretariat; and
  • Endorsement for the request from the relevant national agency and one of the CDIA funding members.


The request for pre-project preparation support may be dovetailed with a request for strategic capacity-building. This would involve addressing key capacity constraints (if any) that must be resolved as a pre-requisite for project preparation and implementation. Following approval of the support request, a technical assistance contract agreement will be entered into between the applicant and one or more funding partners of CDIA, specifying details of the assignment, sources of funds and consultant recruitment procedure.
