Description Within the overall program framework of ASDP (comprising program and project loans), the program loan will facilitate policy and institutional sector reforms to ensure a favorable environment for market-based agricultural growth. The project loan will provide farmers with extension services for delivery of improved knowledge and technology, and support for agroenterprise development and commercialization.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB's current country strategy includes supporting broad-based economic growth which is essential to sustain poverty reduction. This strategy can be strengthened by sharpening its focus on implications of the state reform program and by enhancing the impact of sector interventions on poverty reduction. ADB agrees with the Government that critical constraints on agricultural growth and productivity need to be addressed under ASDP in line with SEDPII and the National Poverty Reduction Strategy of the Government.
Impact Sustainable growth of the agriculture sector and poverty reduction in the rural areas

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The project will finance a team of consultants, including (i) 21 person-months of international consultants in extension services, and environmental management and monitoring; and (ii) 254 person-months of domestic consultants in project management and coordination, environmental management and monitoring, and agricultural extension. An international consulting firm will be engaged to provide these services. The extension project advisor (international consultant) will act as the team leader, and the project management and coordination specialist will act as the deputy team leader. The selection and engagement of consultants will be done with the ADB's standard quality and cost-based selection method in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB on the engagement of domestic consultants.
Procurement The project requires the procurement of civil works, service vehicles and equipment to be carried out in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Civil works to be procured under the project are the rehabilitation of agricultural extension offices and expected to be in small packages costing less than $100,000. International companies are unlikely to be interested in bidding for these local civil works, which will be procured under local competitive bidding procedures satisfactory to ADB. Packages for some service vehicles, which are likely to exceed $100,000 and can be sourced more effectively from international suppliers, will be procured through international shopping procedures. Where appropriate, procurement may be by direct purchase for items below $100,000.
