The main outputs include: (i) clear assessment of the readiness (gaps and opportunities) for the use of country safeguard systems in ADB operations in specific DMCs (ii) agreed medium term programs that can be updated based on countries' needs in selected DMCs to strengthen country safeguard systems (e.g., TAs concepts supporting efforts to policy and legislation improvement and capacity building, and development of methodology for ADB DMCs mutual efforts in establishing a mutual accountability system in which the real impacts of country safeguard systems on ADB financed projects can be measured) and (iii) harmonized approaches among ADB, WB and other IFIs, for the further use of country safeguard systems in the DMCs. The TA will improve the implementation of environment and social safeguards through strengthened country safeguard systems in DMCs.
