The expected impact of the RETA is the enhanced regional cooperation and integration (RCI) in South Asia. The envisaged outcomes are (i) enhanced capacity of the SAARC Secretariat and its selected regional centers in planning and implementation of cooperation agendas; (ii) increased regional cooperation activities and projects within SAARC; (iii) effective sharing of information and experience on regional cooperation; and (iv) enhanced capacity of the SAARC member countries to implement RCI programs and projects.
The activities of the RETA will be flexible to accommodate priority areas agreed in the joint SAARC-ADB annual work program. The five key outputs are:
(i) Joint SAARC-ADB annual work program. This aims at providing more concerted and planned assistance to the SAARC Secretariat and will entail formulating a joint work plan for the sustained development of the region.
