The TA is anchored on two core concepts that affect the quality of development work of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in the Asia-Pacific region: (i) good governance, including effective public sector management (PSM), and (ii) knowledge generation and dissemination in PSM, and partnership with institutions as part of the ADB's commitment to drivers of change in Strategy 2020. With respect to enhancing knowledge generation and dissemination in PSM, a partnership with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) in Singapore will be established given its mission to train the next generation of Asian policymakers and leaders, and the very close alignment with its objective (of raising the standards of governance throughout the region and improving the lives of the region's people) and that of ADB (poverty reduction in the Asia Pacific region).
