Sovereign Project | 43530-012

Summary

The expected impact of the TA is increased development effectiveness of Government and ADB aligned sector development plans and partnerships in line with the RGC's update of the NSDP, 2009-2013. The outcome will be a better informed, concise and country-owned partnership underpinned by clear mutual understanding of the RGC's reform and development objectives and plans, harmonized sector strategies, roadrnaps and results frameworks that employ managing for development results (MfDR) principles. The output will be sector and subsector assessment updates, strategies and roadrnaps that reflect the RGC's and ADB's development partnership.

All final draft assessments (urban development; agricultural and rural development; education; transportation; environment and climate change; and governance) have been completed. However, the results frameworks of all assessment, except for governance, need to revised. The governance assessment needs some final edits before sending to the government for concurrence for publishing. All sector assessments are expected to be be uploaded to the eOperations in late June 2011.
