Pacific region: Technical Assistance for Enhancing ADB's Engagement in Fragile and Conflict-Affected States

News Brief | 29 March 2012

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved the following technical assistance:


This technical assistance aims to help ADB's fragile and conflict-affected developing member countries build effective institutions that will support peace-building and state-building efforts by further developing and refining fragility assessment tools, and by mapping political economy in selected countries. This will, in turn, help formulate country-specific capacity development plans. Using differentiated country-led models of engagement will help ADB better support countries as they transition out of fragility.


$800,000 equivalent grant from ADB's Technical Assistance Special Fund (TASF-IV).
