Country development partnership cdp
Country Development Partnership (CDP)

  • A CDP is a knowledge-based partnership for analytical work and implementation support actions in key areas of the country’s development agenda

  • The CDP is led by the Government and supported by the Bank and international development partners

  • The World Bank’s engagement can take the forms of analytical studies, just-in-time advisory, capacity building support, financial support, and coordination / facilitation.


Cdp infra objective
CDP-INFRA: Objective

  • To help Thailand improve national competitiveness and the well-being of the population, by supporting the development and implementation of infrastructure strategies, policies, regulatory and institutional actions, and investment programs


Cdp infra components
CDP-INFRA: Components

  • Technical support to the formulation and implementation of infrastructure and logistics development strategies

  • Technical support to renewable energy development and energy efficiency

  • Technical support to urban transport development in the Bangkok metropolitan area, under the Urban TransportDevelopment Partnership (UTDP) jointly supported by ADB, AfD, JBIC, and World Bank Group

  • Technical support to the regulatory capacity building program of the National Telecommunication Commission (NTC)

  • Implementation support to a pilot demonstration project for rural water supply and income generation


Concept development process
Concept Development Process

  • A series of preparatory discussions between the World Bank and the NESDB and other government agencies on sector issues, priorities, and areas and means of collaboration

Infrastructure sector overview
Infrastructure Sector: Overview

  • Infrastructure has played an important role in supporting Thailand’s economic growth over the last few decades

Infrastructure sector overview1
Infrastructure Sector: Overview

  • However, infrastructure bottlenecks emerge due to rising demand for services and inadequate investment in infrastructure capacity

  • High logistics cost, high energy intensity, and low rate of renewable energy use reduce national competitiveness and weaken the foundation for long-term economic growth and sustainability

  • Inadequate water supply in many rural areas and traffic congestion in Bangkok affect the well-being of a large number of population


The sector issues that the cdp infra attempts to help address
The sector issues that the CDP-INFRA attempts to help address

  • How to effectively tackle high logistics cost, high energy intensity, and low level of renewable energy?

  • How to reduce traffic congestion in Bangkok, expand piped water supply in many rural areas?

  • How to ensure medium-term infrastructure investment is consistent with long-term sustainable development goals?

  • How to invest in infrastructure while maintaining macro-economic and financial stability?
