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.
