Project Description

According to the bank document, the proposed Second Upper Secondary Education Sector Development Program (USESDP 2) is part of the phased support of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to develop high-quality human resources by improving the effectiveness of upper secondary education (USE). It builds on and complements ADB's ongoing Upper Secondary Education Sector Development Program (USESDP 1). The program will (i) improve teacher quality and boost the quality and labor market relevance of USE; and (ii) strengthen institutional capacity for USE planning, management, and delivery. While the policy reforms will apply nationwide, the project activities will cover only selected areas.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
