During Project Design
During Project Implementation The R-S-PATA will support the consultations with stakeholders in 39 DMCs on the MTR. The consultations will be both country-specific and regional and will be held in five locations (Cambodia, Fiji, India, Kyrgyz Republic, and the Philippines). The R-S-PATA will support the participation of two senior officials from each DMC who are familiar with ADB operations, one from the finance ministry and one from a relevant line ministry, for a total of 70 ADB-funded DMC participants and 8 in-country DMC officials as well as the participation of civil society and private sector representatives. In parallel, ADB will also organize separate meetings to seek the feedback from representatives of ADF countries on the long-term strategic vision for the ADF as an important input to the MTR.
