Through the TA, the Safeguards Unit of the Central and West Asia Department will review the implementation of ADB's environmental safeguard requirements for projects in Central and West Asia. Some projects have been successful in implementing environmental safeguard requirements but others have fallen short of the expected outcomes. The review will examine successful projects and determine their reasons for success, and also less than successful projects to determine the cause and issues leading to the underperformance. The outcomes will be a set of knowledge products that assist environmental practitioners in Central and West Asia to successfully develop and implement the environmental safeguard requirements for ADB supported projects.
