The report and recommendation of the President on a proposed loan to the People‘s Republic of Bangladesh for the Third Primary Education Development Project describes the project terms and conditions for the approval of the Board of Directors of ADB.

The project is a follow-on to the ongoing Second Primary Education Development Program (PEDP II), the first sector─wide approach in the education sector in Bangladesh. The project will contribute to the government‘s 5-year (FY2012–FY2016) Third Primary Education Development Program (PEDP III) covering 1 year of pre-primary education and 5 years of primary education. Together with eight other development partners, the project will support the government‘s priorities of improving student learning outcomes and completion rates, and reducing disparities across regions. PEDP III will focus on achieving key output results and other implementation steps to policy and institutional changes that are essential to meet the government‘s objective of providing quality education for all children.
