On Wednesday, the 14th of December, will take place the Webinar "Low and Lower-Middle Income Countries – Impact of ecology and climate transition on road project preparation: financing, capacity building, technical standards".

>> Register here <<

Task Force 1.3 "Well-Prepared Projects in Low and Middle-Income Countries" is a follow-up to Task Force 1.1 "Well-Prepared Projects" which produced two reports in 2022. However, participation from low and middle-income countries was very limited.

Thus, this new Study Group 1.3 attempts to fill this gap, focusing in particular on the issues of financing project studies and the role of development banks. The webinar aims to organise a fruitful discussion to gather the experiences of all interested parties.
