|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||Governace is a key pillar of ADB's country operational strategy for Mongolia, where ADB has supported public sector governance reforms since 1995. The Governance Reform Program (GRP) led to the formulation of a 10-year reform roadmap to be implemented over 1999-2009. GRP also helped implement critical administrative and financial management reforms on a pilot basis in selected budgetary agencies over 1999-2002. This program cluster forms an integral part of the governance reform roadmap and will help further the reforms through capacity building as well as mainstreaming measures.|
