MoU on Water Supply Study Signed
July 11, 2012
India: A Memorandum of Understanding for a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) on water supply was signed by the Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA) and Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) on Thursday, July 5, 2012.
The MoU was signed by Senior Programme Manager of CDIA Balakrishnan Elangovan and Municipal Commissioner B. Ramanjaneyulu. GVMC had earlier signed a MoU with CDIA, an associate member of Asian Development Bank, for the latter’s support in preparing a revised City Development Plan. Signing the MoU, Mr. Ramanjaneyulu said the support being extended by CDIA in preparing the revised CDP and the PFS would be very valuable. Identifying infrastructural gaps and strengthening the investment proposals for water supply distribution to meet the demand for the city and peripheral areas as well as revised CDP in time for the second phase of JNNURM would be valuable. CDIA and Singapore would be collaborative partners in the development of the city planned modelled on Singapore, he added.
