Also, the support may refer to other areas that are necessary for the preparation for funding and feasibility studies (e.g. sector strategies, master plans, project screening, pre-feasibility, national tariffs, unit cost studies, etc.). Services may also be required in the analysis of horizontal issues affecting more than 1 project or more than 1 country, such as the development of methodological guidelines, model project approaches, PPP-grant blending or State-aid issues.
