ADB-Mongolia Partnership Strategy

The interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014-2016 for Mongolia has two strategic pillars: competitive, sustainable, and regionally integrated growth; and inclusive social development. It identifies five priority sectors: transport, energy, water and other urban infrastructure and services, education, and health.

The interim CPS provides two strategic adjustments to the CPS for 2012-2016, reflecting changed government priorities. These are the inclusion of two additional sectors (agriculture, natural resources, and rural development; and finance) and scaling up ordinary capital resources (OCR) lending to meet pressing development needs. 

Major changes to the CPS 2012-2016 emphasize the following:

  • employment creation through economic diversification and regional integration;
  • environmental rehabilitation and protection, with adaptation to climate change; and
  • renewed focus on basic education, social welfare reform, and support for people with disabilities.

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.
