The TA provides support to important agreed actions under the policy matrix for the LGFGR 2 (Sub Program 2) program. Strengthening of decentralization policy and enhancing the performance of Regional Governments to deliver services are core elements of the Government?s 5 year Development Plan and also represent one of the key pillars of the ADB Country Strategy and Program 2006-2009 and Country Operations Business Plan 2009-2011. The proposed assistance falls under the umbrella of the long standing LGFGR program and is very closely linked to supporting achievement of important actions in the policy matrix for the proposed subprogram 2 scheduled in 2011. The PATA follows on from several earlier TAs under the LGFGR series of programs with additional support warranted by the breadth and depth of the decentralization reform program being pursued.

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The TA provides support to important agreed actions under the policy matrix for the LGFGR 2 (Sub Program 2) program. Strengthening of decentralization policy and enhancing the performance of Regional Governments to deliver services are core elements of the Government?s 5 year Development Plan and also represent one of the key pillars of the ADB Country Strategy and Program 2006-2009 and Country Operations Business Plan 2009-2011.

The PATA follows on from several earlier TAs under the LGFGR series of programs with additional support warranted by the breadth and depth of the decentralization reform program being pursued. It carries forward the work on fiscal decentralization policies, alignment of sector and decentralization laws, performance measurement and transmission of financial information from regional governments. Approval of this TA was foreshadowed in the RRP which approved the LGFGR 2 program in December 2008. The RRP envisaged a piggy back TA to support the reform agenda of the Government in regional government financing and governance and a follow on PATA in 2009 to carry forward the on going work in the same areas.|
