The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved the following technical assistance:

Description

In order to make good policy and reform decisions, Developing Member Countries need knowledge from ADB that is evidence-based and that guides them on what works and what does not. They also need critical analysis of the risks they face and how others may or may not have adequately addressed those risks. This technical assistance will provide knowledge products and platforms to help generate sound information to guide policy-makers through working papers, symposiums, forums, workshops, books, toolkits, and blogs.

Amount 

$1.5 million equivalent, including $500,000 grant from the Technical Assistance Special Fund (TASF-IV) and $1 million grant from TASF-Others.
