The Resilient Community Development Project (RCDP) will target areas that are vulnerable to climate and disaster risk (CDR) and will follow a phased, cluster approach, grouping vulnerable townships in the same area. The project has identified clusters of poor townships in regions exposed to CDR using climate projections and 2014 census data. It will benefit about 1.8 million people in 17 townships in Ayeyarwady, Chin, Sagaing, and Tanintharyi. The project will support the Government of Myanmar in strengthening its community-based development (CBD) policies and procedures.
The Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar has approached the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for support to develop and contribute to the financing of a national rural roads and access program. The project will improve about 152 km of rural roads in two pilot regions, Ayeyarwaddy and Magway, and develop the technical bases and capacity for the program. The project outcome is improved disaster-resilient road access for rural people, by way of launching a nationwide rural roads and access program, a part of which ADB will finance.
The Integrated Disaster Risk Management Fund (IDRM Fund) is administered by ADB on behalf of its financing partner, the Government of Canada, and with an implementation period of March 2013-March 2020. As ADB prepares to close the Fund, documenting and sharing lessons learned among stakeholders in Southeast Asia is a priority.
An equity investment of up to $5 million in Kaizen Private Equity II Private Limited (_KPE II_, _Fund II_, the _Fund_), a targeted $79 million private equity fund managed by Kaizen Capital Management (_Kaizen Private Equity_, _Kaizen_) that will invest in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in the education sector in South and Southeast Asia.
The Asian Development Bank has approved a small-scale transaction TA on 5 September 2019. The TA will produce an updated feasibility study for the proposed project that includes project scope and rationale, technical due diligence, economic and financial appraisal, environment and social safeguards; and project implementation arrangement and financing plan.
The TA aims to address the needs of the member states and the secretariat of the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) to advance regional cooperation and integration (RCI) among member states in select thematic areas
This knowledge and support technical assistance will advance cooperation in the maritime sector of five countries Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Myanmar and Sri Lanka under the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) Program. The Technical Assistance (TA) will focus on addressing common issues adversely impacting on the performance of the subregion's ports.
The transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will provide technical support, capacity building, and policy advice to prepare a series of ensuing programs and projects to strengthen public management, financial sector, and trade policies in the Southeast Asian developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) during 2019-2022. The TA facility will combine supports for policy and reform actions required by the Southeast Asian DMCs to prepare various policy-based and project loans during 2019-2021.
The proposed transaction technical assistance (TRTA) will support the Government of Myanmar to develop a systematic and practical approach for road safety in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) East-West Economic Corridor Bago-Kyaikto existing national highway of about 90 kilometers (km). The TRTA also aims to help the Government to establish initial foundation for a sustainable and systematic road safety regime. The outcome of the proposed project, is more efficient and safer movement of goods and people between Bago and Kyaikto, along the GMS EWEC.
The Program will provide an umbrella facility to provide financing support including loans, guarantees and letters of credit, to overcome the constraints to private sector investment in renewable power projects in Pacific island countries.
The nature of the TA is research and development, where previous studies will be reviewed, including technical discussions with the relevant government agencies and other development partners involved. Multi-criteria analysis will be developed through this consultative process to compare various options considering technical, economic, social and environmental impacts. Relevant stakeholders, including civil aviation authorities, affected communities and interest groups will be identified and consulted.
This knowledge and support technical assistance (KSTA) will identify the priority actions to be undertaken by ADB and developing member countries (DMCs) to mobilize investments for improving market connectivity and value chain linkages, increasing agricultural productivity, and enhancing food safety.
The technical assistance (TA) will embed a rigorous randomized controlled trial approach to impact evaluation within the CFAVC Project, so as to establish an empirical basis for learning and Project improvement over time. More specifically, it will involve identifying up to four key priority interventions for testing within the Project. Those interventions will be those for which the Project Management Unit and other key stakeholders have greatest need for information about effects and assumptions and for which established understanding is most limited.
Strategy 2030, the long-term corporate strategy of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), recognizes the distinct development challenges of small island developing states (SIDS) and fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCAS), and promotes a differentiated approach to operations in these groups of developing member countries (DMCs). In line with Strategy 2030, the proposed technical assistance (TA) will support the integration of a differentiated approach to ADB's operations in the urban sector across the Pacific region.
