Bangladesh - Third Rural Electrification Project (Inglês)

The audit rates the outcome of the project as highly satisfactory, sustainability as highly likely, and institutional development as high. Lessons suggest that attributable to the success of the project was in part, the availability of the master plan, a tried tested model, strengthened by technical assistance from the US National Rural Electrification Cooperative Association. However, even without a sound master plan, the project would not have succeeded in the absence of long-term commitments by the Government. It is important to note the unique division of labor in the Bangladesh system of rural electrification: the cooperatives handle consumer services, and operational aspects; the (apex) Rural Electrification Board performs a quasi-regulatory function, and provides finance, technical inputs, and training; and, the private sector carries out construction. This is a promising model, noteworthy for its transparency, and the quality of performance monitoring. Nonetheless, the feasibility of serving poorer households needs to be more carefully researched, for it is possible that a tradeoff between coverage of the poorest households, and the financial performance of the cooperatives become effective, so, those poorer households - capable of paying domestic electricity tariffs - may nonetheless be cut off from grid supply, because they cannot afford upfront connection costs. This may be the case for providing a targeted subsidy to cover these one-time costs.
