Regional: Enhancing Operational Results Delivery

Sovereign Project | 50324-001

The proposed technical assistance (TA) in the amount of $750,000 sourced from the TASF-Others Fund will provide guidance on improving quality of results-based project design through DMFs, with customized advice for different lending modalities such as policy-based lending, results-based lending, and multitranche financing facilities. It will support operational research in issues that affect delivery of desired project outputs and outcomes and disseminate lessons that can be used to improve project design and delivery. The TA will also expand efforts to capture the transformation that ADB operations produce at the beneficiary level and support the collaborative work with and multilateral development banks (MDBs); including on benchmarking the performance of MDBs through the Common Performance Assessment System report.
