Project Description
During the August 2014 country programming mission, the government requested ADB to provide a Technical Assistance (TA) to continue to promote partnerships for South-South cooperation. The TA will enable continuation of South-South knowledge cooperation between PRC and other DMCs as pursued under TA 7974-PRC: Promoting Partnerships for South-South Cooperation. TA 7974-PRC supported the PRC-ADB knowledge sharing platform activities which led to increased knowledge exchange among DMCs. The TA is included in the PRC's country operations business plan, 2015-2017 as a firm TA for the 2015 pipeline. The design and monitoring framework is in Appendix 1. The main outputs of the TA are (i) increased awareness of best practices and emerging issues and challenges among the PRC and DMCs in the region; and (ii) strengthened high impact policy recommendations, enabling improved sector policy making and capacity building among the PRC and DMCs in the region. The outputs will be measured by: (ii) 2 KSP workshops completed by 2017; and (ii) three publications on the results of the workshops completed by 2017.
