Description The technical assistance (TA) aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) to formulate strategy, plan and manage development, and provide policy analysis and advice.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy NEDA is the principal socioeconomic development planning and policy coordinating body for the Government of the Philippines. It provides policy advice on development issues through its development budget coordination committee and investment coordination committee. NEDA spearheads government strategic planning and coordinates formulation of the 6-year Philippine Development Plan (PDP). It also takes the lead in preparing the country's Public Investment Program (PIP), programming and managing official development assistance (ODA), and monitoring and evaluating public investment projects. Recent assessments of NEDA and consultations with its staff and officials indicate a need to enhance its internal processes and capacities. The TA is in response to Government's request for ADB to support capacity development of NEDA.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design ADB conducted a fact-finding mission on 23-27 September 2010 to (i) confirm the timeliness, relevance, and usefulness of the CDTA; (ii) agree with the stakeholders on the scope, objectives, outputs, methodology and activities, implementation arrangements, cost estimates and financing plan, and consulting services for the CDTA; and (iii) brief on and obtain support for the CDTA from the Embassy of Japan (EOJ). The Mission met with key officials of NEDA and DILG. NEDA and ADB agreed on the Mission's findings and recommendations through a Memorandum of Understanding.
During Project Implementation After the TA was approved by ADB in April 2011, ADB conducted an inception mission on 11 October - 5 December 2011 to discuss and agree with the stakeholders on the TA implementation plan and work programs, fielding of consultants, and refinements in the outline of terms of reference (TOR) of consultants. The Mission met with key officials and staff of NEDA, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Municipal Development Fund Office (MDFO), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and the World Bank. The Mission's findings and recommendations were presented to the Socioeconomic Planning Secretary and NEDA Director General (DG) at a wrap-up meeting on 5 December 2011.
