|The main objective of the Project is to reduce income and deprivation poverty by improving access to quality basic education for poor and vulnerable children, particularly in poorer rural and urban communities. Specific objectives will include improving (i) sustainability and learning environments of education facilities (kindergartens and schools) and expanding their coverage in areas of inadequate capacity; (ii) educational quality and (iii) efficiency and effectiveness of education management. Project activities will be implemented nationwide, with greatest emphasis on improving educational services to the poorest communities in rural and urban areas.|
|The Project is required to support ongoing national efforts to reduce poverty through education. In particular, it will address the need to build on reforms and activities commenced under the ADB financed Education Sector Development Program (ESDP) to increase access to quality primary and secondary education, especially in rural areas and in poorer urban communities. It will also continue ESDP activities for improving efficiency in the sector, including support for greater institutional and financial stability. The Project will support the achievement of the International Development Goals for Mongolia, as well as the achievement of social capital development objectives under the Poverty Partnership Agreement between ADB and Mongolia.|
