ADB-Uzbekistan Partnership Strategy
The country operations business plan (COBP), 2017-2019 for Uzbekistan is consistent with the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012-2016, and more recent government initiatives.
The COBP includes operational support for transport, energy, municipal services, and access to finance. Reflecting emerging development priorities and ADB Strategy 2020 midterm review recommendations, the COBP also includes pilot-based and demand-driven support to education and healthcare.
Support for the key drivers of change - private sector development and operations, regional cooperation, governance and reforms, knowledge management, gender equity, and climate change and the environment - is integrated into the sector-based operational assistance. Stand-alone technical assistance is proposed for demand-led reforms and the creation of knowledge solutions in key areas.
The Access to Information Policy recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the guiding principles and the exceptions to disclosure.
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.
