The country operations business plan (COBP), 2015-2016 for Turkmenistan was formulated in line with the draft interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2015. This strategy has identified energy and transport as priority areas for operations, with regional integration promulgated by the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation program. The COBP stays focused on these sectors to ensure continuity and alignment with the draft interim CPS, provides support for reform efforts through policy and advisory interventions, and takes into account key change drivers and outcomes derived from the recent midterm review of ADB's Strategy 2020.
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.
