Based on extensive in-country consultations with government agencies, nongovernment agencies and civil society organizations, and development partners, the proposed TA is necessary to strengthen SARD's capacity to enhance gender mainstreaming by building on the progress it has already made, replicating good practices across all countries and sectors, and addressing identified gaps and weaknesses in certain sectors and country portfolios. In light of diminishing resources in the Gender and Development Cooperation Fund to support GAD policy implementation in all ADB operations, it is strategically important for SARD to institutionalize its own structure and mechanisms to accelerate gender mainstreaming in all of its operations to meet Strategy 2020 targets. The impact of the proposed TA will be to support DMC's commitment to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in South Asia.
