Project Description

According to the bank website, The project seeks to support ADB's corporate strategic directions and enable the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department (SDCC) to help the ADB's regional departments operationalize them through more constructive engagement with civil society. The TA cluster will focus on the external constraints that have been identified and will also demonstrate new ways of engaging with civil society through operationalizing ongoing improvements in ADB's internal business processes (internal constraints).

The TA cluster will contribute to the improved delivery of inclusive development services in selected DMCs, in support of the SDGs, by contributing to stronger CSO participation in ADB operations. The three outputs of the TA cluster are:

Output 1: Capacity for effective CSO engagement in the design, implementation, and monitoring of ADB projects improved.

Output 2: Demonstration activities through effective CSO engagement conducted.

Output 3: Knowledge products about effective CSO engagement in ADB operations generated and shared.
