Regional Development Plans for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
The RDPs aim to provide a strategic multisectoral plan that identifies the comparative advantages of the three regions and a 25 year investment plan for the component cities. The RDPs will prioritise key subsectors, including water supply, environmental sanitation, solid waste management, tourism, cultural heritage, smart city, urban green spaces and amenities, other municipal services, and urban mobility and regional connectivity. Particular emphasis shall be given to key drivers that promote sustainable urban and economic development.
The RDPs may also explore interventions that will benefit from economies of scale or interconnectivity. The RDPs will consider cross-cutting areas such as corporate or business planning, data and indicators, human resources, procurement, safeguards and budget planning and management. Special attention will also be paid to the urban poor, women’s participation, and measures to address income and gender inequity. The RDPs will be responsible for assessing spatial and demographic land use, and identifying investments for urban areas within the region. The 25 year investment plans at the regional level will help identify the appropriate loan modality and the nature of investments under the loan.
The RDPs shared above are Draft Reports, prepared primarily on the basis of secondary data and sources, and limited stakeholder consultations and field visits given the inability of the project team to mobilise fully to the field during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This is a work in progress that will evolve and become more refined in light of the outcome of further stakeholder consultations and field visits.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan
The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, through GIZ, assisted the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in developing the biodiversity strategy and action plan for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Guided by the processes prescribed by the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, the process entailed an extensive series of consultations across the province; support to the KP Biodiversity Working Group; design of a biodiversity outlook as web-based knowledge hub on biodiversity; assessments of biodiversity conservation needs and capacities; and, finally, preparation of the biodiversity strategy and action plan for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The provincial targets for conservation and sustainable management of biodiversity were aligned with the national as well as Aichi Biodiversity Targets, linking the provincial efforts to global conservation efforts. The strategy and action plan is helping the province to plan and implement measures ensuring integration of concept and value of biodiversity across agriculture, livestock, fisheries, forestry and wildlife sectors.
