Under ADB's country partnership strategy, 2014-2018, Armenia will  receive about $500 million financial assistance to develop  infrastructures, energy and social services that will ensure  flexible, comprehensive and sustainable development of the country.   In the transport sector, ADB will continue to support improving the  north-south road corridor, and promoting transport links between and  within secondary towns, especially those with the highest poverty  rates. To promote regional cooperation and integration, ADB will  coordinate with Georgia to help improve roads linking Armenia and  Georgia.  ADB will support urban development in towns with the  highest poverty rates by helping local governments prepare integrated  urban development plans, and financing modernization of  infrastructures, including in water supply, urban roads, and solid  waste management.  Armenia's aging electricity infrastructure and  heavy dependence on imported fuels affect its energy security.
