Description

The proposed R-CDTA supports IED's ECD primarily in South Asia and the Pacific through regional and country level activities on strengthening monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacity.

Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) and Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) countries shall be primarily supported through a similar technical assistance (TA) program proposed for funding by the People's Republic of China Regional Cooperation and Poverty Reduction Fund (PRCF). The proposed R-CDTA will also support ADB member countries to the degree that they cannot be funded from PRCF.

At the regional level, the R-CDTA supports: (a) training and knowledge sharing activities on M&E and development evaluation at the planned centers of excellence in Sri Lanka and/or Bangladesh for South Asia; and Honolulu, Hawaii, and the University of the Pacific in Fiji for the Pacific; (b) Regional Knowledge Synthesis Workshop on M&E; and (c) hub training on preparing project completion reports and TA completion reports (PCRs/TCRs).

At the country level, the R-CDTA supports (a) on-the-job training (OJT) of DMC representatives at IED on preparing evaluation reports and studies; (b) in-country training on evaluation techniques for government representatives engaged in M&E; and (iii) stocktake and study of M&E systems in selected countries.

Approximately, 6 regional events (i.e. 1 M&E core course and 1 special topic course each in Suva, Fiji, and in Colombo; 1 knowledge synthesis workshop; and 1 PCR hub training); and 5 country-level (3 OJT country participants, 1 in country M&E training, and 1 stocktaking of M&E country system) activities will be supported by this R-CDTA over 18 month period (December 2015 to June 2017).

The R-CDTA will be implemented in parallel with the R-CDTA on supporting CAREC and GMS that will be implemented over 2 years (December 2015 to December 2017) proposed for funding by PRCF.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed R-CDTA responds to ADB Strategy 2020's emphasis on good governance and capacity development, knowledge solutions, and partnerships as drivers of change. It promotes good governance through strengthening results-based M&E system and its role in public sector management, facilitates knowledge exchange on M&E as a good practice at centers of excellence , and encourage partnerships on M&E among practitioners and knowledge providers such as AFDI, CLEAR, and other international M&E organizations.
