ADB's first country operations business plan (COBP) for Turkmenistan has been formulated for 2014-2015 in conjunction with the draft interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2015.
The CPS is ADB's primary platform for designing operations to deliver development results at the country level. ADB works with each developing member country to map out a medium-term development strategy and a 3-year COBP to implement it.
The draft interim CPS 2014-2015 has identified two priority areas of operations in Turkmenistan: the development of transport and energy infrastructure toward enhancing regional cooperation and integration, and support for Turkmenistan's further engagement with the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program.
COBP 2014-2015 incorporates operations in the transport and energy sectors, as well as support for reform efforts and knowledge products through policy and advisory, and capacity development technical assistance projects.
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.
