ADB-Azerbaijan Partnership Strategy
The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2019-2023 for Azerbaijan is aligned with ADB's Strategy 2030, the country's Strategic Road Map on National Economy Perspective, the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) 2030 strategy, and ADB's comparative strengths. The CPS is based on Azerbaijan’s upper middle-income country status.
The CPS supports diversified and inclusive growth in Azerbaijan through three strategic pillars:
- boosting private sector development,
- raising public sector efficiency, and
- improving infrastructure and strengthening human capital.
Accelerating progress in gender equality; tackling climate change and enhancing environmental sustainability; fostering regional cooperation and integration; strengthening governance and institutional capacity; and promoting public-private partnerships are the cross-cutting priorities mainstreamed in the strategic pillars of the CPS.
The Access to Information Policy 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.
