In 2013, the Pakistani authorities adopted a power sector reform programme aimed at increasing installed capacity of national origin (hydroelectric and thermal energy) and improving the sector's performance. The ADB-led sector-budget-support programme is intended to support the government in implementing these reforms. AFD has decided to participate in financing the programme's third phase in order to contribute to the achievement of SDG Goal 7 (Access to affordable, safe, sustainable and modern energy for all). To this end, the project includes the financing of technical assistance to support actions promoting the development of renewable energy projects.
The programme seeks to improve access to energy and the power sector's financial sustainability through better management of tariffs and subsidies; to improve the management of public utilities in the power sector by opening-up energy markets to the private sector; and to increase the sector's performance while securing power supply and promoting transparency and accountability in the sector.
