Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The TA will support Human and Social Development Sector Office operations in Southeast Asia. It will assist in sustaining post-pandemic recovery in education, health, and social protection while addressing the challenges of climate transition. In line with ADB's country partnership strategies, the TA will support project preparation, capacity building, and knowledge and policy advice for ensuing projects from 2023-2025, while supporting the implementation of ongoing projects.
