The envisioned impact of each of the subprojects of the Cluster TA will be the mainstreaming of diagnostic approaches in the development planning processes of DMCs. The outcome will be DMCs' medium-term development plans, poverty reduction strategies, and ADB's partnership strategies with development partners addressing the critical constraints to inclusive and sustainable economic growth. Key outputs of Subproject 3 will include (i) at least 3 publications (country, sector, and/or thematic diagnostic studies); (ii) at least 3 training workshops on diagnostic approaches and/or policy analysis for DMCs' development planning and relevant officials; and (iii) at least 3 dissemination events.

The TA will require the services of a number of international and national experts, including development economists, sector specialists, economic and manuscript editors, and research assistants. Requirements for Subproject 3 are estimated at about 57 person-months of international and 30 person-months of national consulting services. In addition, the subproject will require the services of research assistants as needed.
Given the intermittent nature of assignments, and the variety of expertise required, the subproject will primarily recruit experts individually. All consultants will be recruited by ADB in accordance with ADB Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
