  6. 6. Cofinancing by Swedish Government of €5.5 million €2.2 million (2014) • Support to regional development institutions and local public authorities. > Implementation of investment projects to improve local public service delivery. Benchmarks: • Investment projects prepared for Regional Development to Page 6 ready-for-procurement stage (volume €6 million). • Project implementation management by RDAs without major shortcomings (related investment funding provided by Germany). • Improved management of projects by LPAs, supported by certified energy auditors, financed by the National Fund for Energy Efficiency.
  7. 7. Page 7 Cofinancing by European Union €5.0 million Overall objec-tive Support Moldova in advancing its economic, social and territorial cohesion with focus on development of policy, legal, institutional and developmental framework for an effective development policy for Moldova’s regions. Purpose • Facilitate a regional planning process leading to the development of a project pipeline relevant to specified areas and concerns of MD’s RD and EU Cohesion Policy. • Develop capacities essential to sustain the above objectives and support the wider regional development process. Expec-ted results • Detailed regional plans covering five thematic fields essential to the development of Moldova’s regions (WSS, SWM, local roads of key importance) from these updated regional operational plans for each region (N, S, C). • Updated regional operational plans for each region where RD institutions are in place. • Verified capacity among responsible bodies relevant to the above results, including capacity to continuously manage a project pipeline. • Pipeline of ready to go, ready to finance and ready to procure projects.
  8. 8. MLPS Project Objective Improved Local Public Serviсes in selected villages and towns in the Republic of Moldova Page 8 • Intervention Area I • Investments in innovative technologies and infrastructure; • Increased capacities and modernised management of services; • Enhanced inter-municipal cooperation and local participation. • Intervention Area II • Enhanced coordination between institutions at local, regional and central levels through coherent planning and programming of investments; • Regional sector planning for WSS, SWM, EE in public buildings; • Projects Pipeline, prioritised and ready for implementation.
  9. 9. Basic Assumption • Planned activities lead to progress towards achieving Page 9 the IA1 Objective: Local Public Authorities effectively cooperate and manage improvements of local public services in the selected communities in pilot rayons
  10. 10. Success Indicators • 25 planned pilot measures for improvement of local public services implemented in 3 project priority sectors (WSS, SWM, EE). • LPAs signed 70 formal agreements for joint delivery of Page 10 local public services in 3 project priority sectors. • In 35 communities, 50% of implemented measures in 3 project priority sectors have improved women’s access to local public services.

Investments to optimise infrastructure to provide local public services 4. Increased capacities of LPAs and service providers 5. Mobilisation and awareness raising of the population Support Model Comprehensive Approach … for enhanced sustainability
  13. 13. Page 13 Basic presumption • Planned activities lead to the Result Intervention Area 2: Regional and local public authorities effectively plan strategic investments in three priority sectors (water supply and sanitation, solid waste management and energy efficiency of public buildings).
  14. 14. Page 14 Main success indicators • The three Regional Development Agencies have facilitated the development of viable project concepts in priority sectors, equivalent to the total amount of EUR 170 million. • 70% of stakeholders from 30 Local Public Authorities involved in the Local Planning and Programming expresses their satisfaction regarding the capabilities to facilitate/promote Regional Development Agencies. • 75% of the project concepts promoted by the Regional Development Agencies are examined in detail in terms of environmental impact, taking into account national regulations.
  15. 15. Scope of Work Regional Planning and Programming Page 15 • Development of Regional Sector Programmes for: • Water Supply and Sanitation (WSS); • Solid Waste Management (SWM); • Energy Efficiency (EE) in Public Buildings ; • Regional and Local Roads. • Project pipeline of ‘ready to finance projects’ (including feasibility studies, environmental impact assessments, technical design documents, etc.) for investments in the above sectors. • Capacity development of local and regional development actors.
  16. 16. Page 16 Regional Planning and Programming Activities (2012 – 2014): • Update Regional Development Strategies through inclusion of new priority area Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings. • Update Regional Operational Plans in Water and Sanitation, Solid Waste Management and Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings. • Capacity Development for Regional Development Agencies and Regional Development Councils. Partners and Mediators: • Financial support through Swedish Sida. • Three Regional Development Agencies. • Three Regional Development Councils. • MRDC, Ministry of Economy, Agency for Energy Efficiency, Ministry of Environment.

  18. 18. Page 18 Stages of Progression in Project Development Swedish Contribution EU Possible Project Concept (PPC) Viable Project Concept (VPC) ‘Ready -to –Go’ Project (RGP) (final project) proposed for funding EU Contribution Stages and donors
  19. 19. Key stages in project concepts identification and development, according to the RSP approach • PPC – project idea that is relevant to and consistent with the Regional Page 19 Development Strategy • VPC – project idea which has been sufficiently developed to clearly identify key features; sound understanding of the results/positive change the project can bring; • RGP – final project proposal, not necessarily a full feasibility study, but has all the required documentation, tender books, local commitments, etc. • Project Pipeline – a mechanism whereby a series of projects is developed from conception towards readiness. Projects in the pipeline can have different degrees of readiness, qualities, and speeds, but it must be ensured that poor quality projects do not progress through the pipeline.
  20. 20. Regional Sector Working Groups with representatives of LPAs, public service providers, line ministries, and specialised decentralised nstitutions formed by the RDAs under the auspices of the MRDC in each sector, each region. Page 20 Introduction: sector regional planning and programming as an instrument, participatory and integrated approach Current sector status, legal, institutional framework, development of the RD vision for improved services, The elaboration and discussion of scenarios, facilitating project concepts development Drafting of Regional Sector Programmes, consultation and approval, project concepts development Regional Sector Working Groups
  21. 21. Page 21 Regional Sector Programmes The Regional Sector Programme is an operational tool which will be used to support the development of better investment projects in Moldova. • Align the respective Sector Policies, Regional Development Strategies and local priorities; • Facilitate sound decision-making based on transparent criteria; • Contribute to investment attraction in the covered sectors: • Solid Waste Management ; • Water Supply and Sanitation; • Energy Efficiency of Public Buildings; • Regional and Local Roads.
  22. 22. Next stages: 2014 – 2015 Develop projects: • From concept to as ready to go as possible. • At least estimated €140 million for projects. • Likely investments of around €80 million in SWM, €30 million in WSS, Page 22 €25 million in EE (PB), €40 million in roads. To complete this work. It is likely that at some stage: • Further assistance will be needed from other donors/IFIs (i.e. to take over some projects from us at an appropriate point). • There should be an alignment between the medium-term public investment programme and the developing pipeline of ‘real’ investments. • Substantial and prioritised sector reform needs to move in tandem (as already indicated in part in Regional Sector Planning documents). In short , we need ‘an agenda for change’ and for ‘gear shift” .
