Country Diagnostic Studies

ADB aligns its assistance strategies and operations with the development plans and poverty reduction strategies of its developing member countries (DMCs). However, ADB recognizes that DMCs may need assistance in strengthening their planning processes and capabilities for undertaking underlying diagnostic and analytical assessments. Country diagnostic studies attempt to diagnose the most critical constraints that the country faces to achieving these goals. Critical constraints are those whose removal could yield the highest welfare gains.
