Under the proposed Program, South Asia will undertake necessary reforms to address key development challenges in order to attain equitable broad-based growth. Expected outcomes are innovative approaches in addressing the key development challenges in South asia, which will be implemented and disseminated within the region and to other Asian countries. Furthermore, in line with the ongoing Innovation and Efficiency Initiative, the proposed umbrella approach is expected to improve operational efficiency in providing development assistance services to the DMCs in South Asia by focusing more on the quality of ADB services to address the above-mentioned development challenges in South Asia, rather than on associated paper preparation. It may also contribute to some reduction in the number of TAs during the next 5 years.
