This material has been developed by CDIA to assist cities and municipalities to do a better and more structured job in urban infrastructure planning, prioritization and programming. This toolkit facilitates the first step in the process from a wish list to a shortlist of infrastructure projects ready to be presented to financiers and project developers.
This guide has been developed to clarify the term “Prefeasibility Study (PFS)” and aims to further clarify what the typical contents of a PFS could contain. This document was formulated primarily for our CDIA stakeholders (local governments of medium-sized cities in Asia), and not in the least for consultants who are hired to undertake and implement CDIA supported assignments.
Visit our Projects page to see where the PFS Guide is being used.
This publication is intended as a practical guide for mayors, local government officials, sector specialists, planners, and other decision makers involved in the programming and design of urban infrastructure projects in medium-sized cities.

It is not a book of comprehensive answers but a basic guide about how to view PPPs and where to find more information so that local authorities can come to find their own answers.
