IMC was appointed by the Asian Development Bank in 2014 to undertake economic and financial appraisals of the enhancement of CAREC Corridors 3&5 within Tajikistan. The assignment was to complete the appraisals of the strengthening of the Sayron – Karamik road section, reconstruction of the Vose – Khovaling road section, and the installation of renewable energy sources to supply roadside and village street lighting, as part of road safety initiatives. IMC worked closely with a local partner to provide traffic surveys, engineering designs and costs.
The economic appraisals utilised standard World Bank methodologies and included quantitative risk analysis to assess a range of economic, environmental and geo-political risks. IMC also completed economic analyses of improvements using HDM4, of the proposals to upgrade the road between Bishkek and China in Kyrgyzstan.
