The country operations business plan (COBP), 2014-2016, for Armenia supports ADB’s key strategic agendas of inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth and regional integration, as well as the Government of Armenia's objective of increasing employment through the creation of quality and high-productivity jobs.
The COBP is consistent with the priorities set in ADB's Strategy 2020 and takes into account the preliminary directions in ADB's first country partnership strategy for Armenia, which is being prepared for ADB Board consideration in 2014. It also considers recommendations from the Independent Evaluation Department at ADB, which has made a validation report of the final review of country operations during 2006-2011.
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.
