Under the Bangladesh country partnership strategy (CPS), 2011-2015, ADB will encourage more harmonized sector and project assistance approaches in line with the Bangladesh Joint Cooperation Strategy, 2010-2015.
The CPS, 2011-2015, emphasizes the need to design projects that are better prepared for implementation. This means projects that are simpler, taking into consideration capacity constraints, and including covenants that are realistic, focused, and properly sequenced.
Under the country operations business plan, 2014-2016, ADB will deepen its support for promoting inclusive growth. It will continue to support investment and reform to improve energy efficiency and access to power, develop railway connectivity, enhance skills and the quality of secondary education, and improve the urban environment, governance, and services - including urban water supply and sanitation. ADB will also help deepen financial markets, develop climate-resilient rural connectivity, and foster integrated management of water resources, including irrigation and flood and riverbank-erosion mitigation.
