Project Description
According to ADB website, the TA aims to increase investments in farming and agri-logistics through increased knowledge of governments and ADB in identifying appropriate potential agriculture and natural resource investments. The TA is expected to deliver three key outputs: overall agricultural investment requirement and prioritized areas for investment identified in developing member countries; climate-resilient agricultural technology promoted and disseminated in selected developing member countries; and knowledge on customized wholesale markets improved. The activities and deliverables in support of these outputs are intended to address the lack of accurate data on investments in the agriculture and natural resources sector in the region, limited knowledge and information on existing and successful climate-smart technologies, and lack of information on wholesale markets models that could be effective in ADB's developing member countries.
Investment Description
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB)
