Project Description

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the development of an education sector master plan (ESMP) in Mongolia through capacity development, research and development, and policy advice to improve planning and management of the education system. The Government of Mongolia has requested the TA from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to develop a long-term education sector plan which defines a clear roadmap towards the goals set forth in the Mongolia's Sustainable Development Vision 2030 (the Vision 2030). ADB provided technical assistance for the development of the first ESMP, 2006 2015 and its update, 2009 2015, and has been one of the major development partners in the education sector in Mongolia since the late 1990s. During the mission conducted in June 2017, ADB and the government reached agreement on the objectives, scope, implementation arrangements, costs, and consulting service requirements. The TA is included in ADB's country operations business plan, 2017-2019 for Mongolia.
