In 2012, the World Bank launched a new business line in South Asia focused on Culture and Development. Since then, a portfolio is being developed including investment loans and policy advisory support. At investment level, the Uttar Pradesh Pro Poor Tourism Development Project, effective in 2018, is the first inclusive tourism development project being approved under the program. The project was designed and is being implemented on a demonstration basis and is expected to inform a new generation of investment loans focused on culture as a driver of inclusive growth.
The main objective of this assignment is to provide project management support to the Bank task team for the effective implementation of the project for its mid-term review.
