Regional: Mainstreaming Managing for Development Results in Support of Poverty Reduction in South Asia

Sovereign Project | 39601-012

Summary

The expected impact over time of this RETA is to contribute to holistic poverty reduction as reflected in the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. This will be done through ADB?s resident missions, in close coordination with the local DFID offices and other development partners to help develop sustainable country capacities for the application of results-oriented approaches to poverty reduction within the framework of each country?s own system. Appendix 2 presents the design and monitoring framework for the RETA.

The main intended outcome of the RETA is that these three DMCs adopt MfDR as an explicit public sector management practice. The expected outputs and key deliverables of this RETA are (i) MfDR readiness assessment, (ii) MfDR strategy and implementation plans, and (iii) MfDR mainstreamed under ADB-financed pilot initiatives.
