As stated by the ADB, the proposed regional technical assistance (TA) will strengthen food security in the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) member countries. It will support the commitment of the ADB to achieving resilient and sustainable food security in the region.
Specifically, the TA will support the implementation of priority activities identified under the Cooperation Framework for Agricultural Development and Food Security in the CAREC Region, which was endorsed by the CAREC Ministerial Conference on 24 November 2022. Building on the outcomes of key regional cooperation priority activities, the TA will help identify business opportunities for bankable food security related investment projects relevant to the focus areas stated in the cooperation framework.
The TA is intended to support CAREC member countries (i) increase knowledge sharing in agriculture modernization and food security, (ii) prioritize the planned and/or proposed activities under the existing CAREC initiatives in terms of their significance for agricultural development and food security in the CAREC region, (iii) design and undertake additional CAREC activities to foster inclusive agriculture modernization and/or enhance food security in the region, (iv) increase synergies among these activities, and (v) amplify their overall positive impacts on agricultural development and food security in the CAREC member countries.

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.
