The interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2015 for Afghanistan extends the validity of the CPS, 2009-2013. The interim CPS will continue ADB’s focus on three priority sectors: transport, energy and agriculture, natural resources, and rural development. ADB’s interventions will continue to support pillar 3 (economic and social development) and to some extent pillar 2 (governance, rule of law, and human rights) of the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS) .
The country operations business plan (COBP), 2015-2017 for Afghanistan will be implemented under the interim CPS and a new CPS that is expected to be approved in late 2015 or early 2016.
The COBP is aligned with selected development priorities in the ANDS and the national priority programs. It will promote inclusive economic growth, regional integration, gender equity, governance and capacity development, and private sector development.
The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.
The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
