Regional: Capacity Development in Results-Based Monitoring and Evaluation for Countries under the Asian Development Bank's Central Asia Regional Economic Cooper

Sovereign Project | 43338-012

Summary

The changing development context of the Asia and Pacific region and the advent of learning organizations and knowledge based economies have fed stocktaking exercises in the Independent Evaluation Department (IED) that warrant placing a stronger accent on evalaution capacity development (ECD). This would also be congruent with items on the international development agenda, e.g., the Millennium Development Goals and the Paris Declaration, and ADB's support for these initiatives. From experience with national and sectoral M&E systems, it is therefore meaningful to strengthen ECD at the regional level in the framework of ADB's regional initiatives. In addition, the proposed technical assistance is consistent with ADB s own diagnostic assessments of Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) member countries.

Description
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The changing development context of the Asia and Pacific region and the advent of learning organizations and knowledge based economies have fed stocktaking exercises in the Independent Evaluation Department (IED) that warrant placing a stronger accent on evalaution capacity development (ECD). This would also be congruent with items on the international development agenda, e.g., the Millennium Development Goals and the Paris Declaration, and ADB's support for these initiatives. From experience with national and sectoral M&E systems, it is therefore meaningful to strengthen ECD at the regional level in the framework of ADB's regional initiatives. In addition, the proposed technical assistance is consistent with ADB s own diagnostic assessments of Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) member countries. For example, in 2005 ADB reported that reforms in CAREC DMCs are critical in order to strengthen the core functions of central governments, especially in policy development and program monitoring (ADB. 2004. Regional Cooperation Strategy and Program for CAREC Member Countries 2005 2007. Manila.). This proposal has also been guided by IED's current technical assistance project for M&E capacity building in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam RETA 6410: Capacity Development for Monitoring and Evaluation.
