Country Partnership and Regional Cooperation Strategies Under Preparation

The Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) provides the strategic framework for ADB to engage with each developing member country (DMC). It is the primary platform for designing operational programs to deliver development results at the country level, guided by both the country's development strategy and the corporate strategic priorities of ADB. The CPS timeframe is aligned with the client's strategic planning cycle, where relevant and feasible. Adjustments in the timeframe can be made if justified by major economic or political developments. In such case, an interim CPS with a time horizon of a maximum of 2 years and abbreviated business process may be prepared when there is considerable uncertainty.

The Regional Cooperation Strategy (RCS) is a strategy for an ADB-defined region or subregion in Asia and the Pacific to achieve the desired objectives of regional cooperation.
