The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Economic Cooperation Program was initiated in 1992 with ADB support. By end-2007, it had mobilized $9.9 billion in investment projects and $166 million in technical assistance, of which ADB's support amounted to $3.4 billion for investments and $76 million for TA. In spite of the significant progress under the Program, reliable estimates of the socioeconomic effects of GMS projects are rare. The Mid-Term Review of the GMS Strategic Framework (2002-2012) recommended stronger M&E of GMS projects and programs by establishing a system for monitoring and quantifying their poverty impact.
