Regional: Subproject 1: Economic Diagnostic Studies in Asia and the Pacific

Sovereign Project | 46186-008

The TA (Subproject 1) will support the preparation of economic diagnostic studies to assist developing member countries (DMCs) enhance national development plans and strategies for achieving sustained and inclusive growth. The diagnostic studies will utilize the latest tools, methodologies, and data to help identify macroeconomic, sector, and thematic constraints to growth and inclusion; and recommend policy actions for relaxing these constraints, paying careful attention to the costs and benefits of alternative interventions. It will also support capacity building for DMCs to undertake an economic diagnostic approach toward development planning.

Description The TA (Subproject 1) will support the preparation of economic diagnostic studies to assist developing member countries (DMCs) enhance national development plans and strategies for achieving sustained and inclusive growth. The diagnostic studies will utilize the latest tools, methodologies, and data to help identify macroeconomic, sector, and thematic constraints to growth and inclusion; and recommend policy actions for relaxing these constraints, paying careful attention to the costs and benefits of alternative interventions. It will also support capacity building for DMCs to undertake an economic diagnostic approach toward development planning.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy A number of ADB DMCs continue to lack the analytical and planning capacity to undertake high-quality diagnostic analysis. The conduct of diagnostic studies will help low- and middle-income ADB DMCs to identify the most pressing challenges and focus their limited resources toward addressing these to achieve high and inclusive sustainable growth. The studies will be aligned directly or indirectly with the priorities identified under Strategy 2030. The studies will undertake analyses in priority areas that can deliver useful inputs to help prepare national development plans; sector and thematic development strategies; and ADB interventions, including country partnership strategy (CPS) documents. Through this, ADB is enhancing its role as a knowledge provider by developing knowledge that is tailored to local contexts and helping replicate lessons and good practices across the region to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Impact Critical constraints to ADB's DMCs' inclusive and sustainable economic growth addressed
