The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018 for Azerbaijan is aligned with ADB's Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, the country's development strategy, the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) 2020 strategy, and ADB's comparative strengths.
The CPS has the following strategic priorities and drivers of change:
- inclusive growth,
- poverty reduction,
- infrastructure development,
- environmental sustainability,
- job creation,
- social protection,
- private sector development,
- good governance, and
- capacity development.
The priority sectors are transport, energy, and water and other urban infrastructure and services.
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.
In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
