ADB-Turkmenistan Partnership Strategy

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2016-2017 for Turkmenistan was formulated in line with the draft interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2013-2015. The COBP will focus on energy and transport, which are the priority areas for operations identified in the draft interim CPS, and provide support for reform efforts through policy and advisory interventions. Operations will also promote regional integration under the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) program.

Project-level interventions is expected to include private sector promotion, knowledge sharing, and capacity building components. Their overall design will embrace key change drivers as well as key outcomes as derived from ADB's midterm review of Strategy 2020.

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.
