Evaluation Document | 21 April 2022

ONGOING EVALUATION. This evaluation will assess the performance and results of Asian Development Bank (ADB) support for the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program during 2011–2022. The evaluation will assess both ADB support for the functioning of the CAREC Program, mainly the role of the CAREC Secretariat, and ADB financing of CAREC operations. The findings and recommendations of the evaluation will inform future ADB support for the CAREC Program, including efforts to help strengthen the Program’s implementation and further improve design and the institutional framework. Together with the evaluations of GMS and SASEC Programs, the CAREC evaluation will generate lessons to help shape the design and implementation of ADB regional economic cooperation programs.
