Description

The e-Asia and Knowledge Partnership Fund (EAKPF) aims to contribute to poverty reduction and foster the economic and social development process in ADB's developing member countries (DMCs) by supporting technical assistance (TA) projects that promote and utilize information communication technology (ICT) (e-Asia program) and by sharing information and knowledge (Knowledge Partnership program).

In 2011, there were 14 proposals endorsed by the GOK and 13 TAs approved by ADB for implementation. There were significantly more projects endorsed and approved under Knowledge Partnership compared to those under the e-Asia program. The ADB-approved TAs, most of which supported capacity development, were prominently regional in scope and focused on public sector management, followed by finance, multiple sectors, and water and other municipal infrastructure and services.

The 2011 report of the e-Asia and Knowledge Partnership Fund aims to describe and review the progress of the Fund operations during the period of January to December 2011, in compliance with the reporting requirements stipulated in the ADB Board Paper and the ADB-GOK Channel Financing Agreement.
