The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA), an endorsed corporate priority TA, aims to enhance knowledge and capacity by facilitating the establishment and operation of an education partnership platform (EPP). The EPP will be an open platform to bring together a wide range of partners, both traditional (donor countries) and non- traditional [foundations, civil society organizations (CSOs), centers of excellence and corporates] with the flexibility to support country, subsector, and theme specific priorities of partners. It will support the development of knowledge and human resource capacity of participating developing member countries (DMCs) to improve student learning and labor market linkages of education projects. Effective coordination is essential to match demand for and supply of assistance to take full advantage of potential resources that can be made available. This TA will (i) provide initial funding to leverage other sources of support from different partners and (ii) seek supplementary TA support from ADB resources depending on the progress and availability of resources from partners. In addition to supporting the secretariat functions of the EPP, the TA will provide financial resources for priority projects to be supported by EPP to conduct research and pilot activities, or to formulate proposals for investment projects in the education sector. EPP will try to tap the Japan fund for Poverty Reduction and other ADB-managed financing partnership facilities for specific projects. The TA is included in the Management-approved Education Sector Group's (EdSG) 2017 annual work plan
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
