Project Description

According to bank documents, the proposed TA cluster will comprise 3 TA subprojects encompassing production of the 2019 to 2021 Asian Development Outlooks (ADO), ADO Updates, and ADO Supplements. These TA subprojects are chronologically sequenced. The cluster TA will support the following activities: (i) preparation of background analytical papers following the two-year rolling research plan, (ii) further development and refinement of analytical methods, (iii) drafting of ADO content, (iv) editing economic content and manuscripts, (v) preparation and laying out of materials for publication, and (vi) dissemination of key results and policy messages. In parallel, the cluster TA will support initiatives to build capacity for macroeconomic modeling and for generating growth projections and monitoring markets. The cluster TA will also undertake activities to evaluate the effectiveness of ADO outreach. ERMR will work with DOC to attempt to capture broader and more useful client feedback.
