52204-001: Towards Effective and Sustainable Delivery of Development Results in Fragile Situations in the Pacific | Asian Development Bank

Regional: Towards Effective and Sustainable Delivery of Development Results in Fragile Situations in the Pacific

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52204-001 Status: Active

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support improving the development effectiveness and sustainability of Asian Development Bank (ADB) operations in fragile situations to help build resilience and address the causes of fragility in the Pacific. Through a series of country assessments, the TA will map out contributing factors to fragility in the Pacific. Based on these assessments as well as a review of ongoing and completed projects, the TA will identify new approaches to operations in fragile situations for project design, implementation, and operation and maintenance (O&M). The TA will also facilitate capacity building and institutional strengthening activities that respond to the specific needs of fragile situations and help build resilience. A flagship knowledge-sharing event on fragility-sensitive approaches to development in the Pacific will provide for an exchange of experiences, lessons learned and best practices.

Description The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support improving the development effectiveness and sustainability of Asian Development Bank (ADB) operations in fragile situations to help build resilience and address the causes of fragility in the Pacific. Through a series of country assessments, the TA will map out contributing factors to fragility in the Pacific. Based on these assessments as well as a review of ongoing and completed projects, the TA will identify new approaches to operations in fragile situations for project design, implementation, and operation and maintenance (O&M). The TA will also facilitate capacity building and institutional strengthening activities that respond to the specific needs of fragile situations and help build resilience. A flagship knowledge-sharing event on fragility-sensitive approaches to development in the Pacific will provide for an exchange of experiences, lessons learned and best practices.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Improving ADB's development effectiveness in fragile situations requires a detailed understanding of the sources of fragility and a differentiated approach with new and innovative solutions that help build resilience. Traditional approaches to building capacity and strengthening institutions have had mixed success, while standard business processes limit the ability to adapt project design, implementation, and O&M arrangements to the special needs of fragile situations in the Pacific. The suitability of new approaches, such as using one consultant for one project and including dedicated O&M funding, which are being implemented on pilot basis in the Pacific, needs to be further assessed for fragile situations. Increased collaboration with other development partners in the Pacific is also needed when working in fragile situations.
Impact Increased effectiveness and sustainability of development results in fragile situations in the Pacific

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
