Description

This technical assistance report is a decision document for Implementing the Greater Mekong Subregion Core Agriculture Support Program (Phase 2), containing issues, impacts, outcomes, methodology and key activities as well as cost and financing and implementation arrangements presented to ADB’s Board of Directors or Management for approval.

Food and energy security, particularly for the poor, has become one of the most important issues in development dialogues, and the increasing financial, environmental, and health costs of current agricultural practices indicate that alternative strategies are required. The impact of the proposed technical assistance will be a more integrated, climate-friendly agricultural sector in the GMS. The outcome is enhanced market access for environmentally friendly agricultural products produced by smallholders.
