    Hi every one,

    I would like to ask you the meaning of "precise nature" here.

    Such systematic project performance monitoring and evaluation system indicates: (a) the effectiveness of Project implementation activities, including (i) the precise nature, timeliness, cost and quality of physical infrastructure implemented in the Project....

    This sentence is derived from a document named Memorandum of Understanding of Asian Development Bank.

    I don't know what "precise nature" means. I guess it means "preciseness" but it sounds unreasonable.

    It means you have to say exactly (precisely) what the (nature of the) physical infrastructure is. If the project includes building a bridge, you have to say what kind of bridge it is, how long it is, how wide it is, what materials it's made of, and so on.
