Strengthening Safeguard Capacity in the Pacific
ONGOING EVALUATION. This paper sets out the evaluation approach for the conduct of performance evaluation of five individual technical assistance projects supported by ADB to strengthen country safeguard systems in the Pacific. The findings of the report will help strengthen ADB policy and capacity development support to mitigate the environment and involuntary resettlement impacts of development projects in the Pacific. It will also inform the Board and Management regarding the constraints and opportunities in applying ADB’s Safeguard Policy Statement in the Pacific context. The report will provide inputs to the ADB Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS) evaluation planned in 2019.
