ADB-Armenia Partnership Strategy

The overarching goal of the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2018 is to help Armenia integrate its economy regionally and rebalance it toward more resilient, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable growth. It supports improving transport links, upgrading secondary towns, and strengthening energy security.

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2016-2018 supports the strategic directions on transport, water and other urban infrastructure and services, and energy. It focuses on improving regional roads and urban roads in Yerevan and in secondary cities, improving urban environments and supporting targeted interventions in secondary cities, and helping enhance energy security through the diversification of energy sources, rehabilitation and upgrading of electricity transmission and distribution networks. Also promoted under this COBP are the main cross-cutting CPS strategic priorities of private sector development, regional cooperation, knowledge solutions, environmental sustainability, disaster risk management, gender, governance, and institutional strengthening.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
