During Project Design
During Project Implementation The Ministry of National Planning and Economic Development (MNPED) will be the executing agency. A subcommittee will be formed by the government, comprising senior officials from the participating ministries. The subcommittee will provide coordination for TA activities and be a forum for exchanging good lessons in capacity development for project identification, prioritization, and formulation across ministries. A TA focal point in each participating ministry will provide administrative support for the conduct of all activities. ADB will attend subcommittee meetings as an observer.
