Strengthening Knowledge Solutions for the Cambodia-ADB Partnership: Technical Assistance Completion Report
sector: Public Sector Management | country: Cambodia
Supporting the development of government strategy and aligning ADB country strategy with national strategy is essential for effective ADB country operations. Providing and disseminating sustained knowledge products and services (KPS) to government requires additional resources, besides existing ADB staff capacity. The S-PATA (small-scale policy and advisory technical assistance) has been instrumental for CARM (Cambodia Resident Missions) in this respect, despite the fact that output 4 was not achieved. One related lesson that emerges from implementation of the S-PATA is that project scope and complexity should be carefully calibrated to available resources.
