The regional technical assistance (TA) responds to the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Regional Integration and Cooperation Strategy under its 4th Pillar: Cooperation in Regional Public Goods through coordinated actions to supply regional public goods, such as clean air, environmental protection, control of communicable diseases, and management of natural disasters; and dissemination of analysis and research findings in the public domain through publications, workshops, and shared standards.

The TA is closely aligned with the following recently approved or proposed TA projects:

  • Regional Review of the Economics of Climate Change in Southeast Asia;
  • Regional Connectivity in Infrastructure in Archipelagic Southeast Asia;
  • Strengthening CMRM in the CTI of the Pacific, Phase 1;
  • Enhancing Regional Cooperation and Knowledge Sharing to Support the CTI; and
  • Strengthening Sound Environmental Management in the BIMP-EAGA.

Synergies across these TA projects will ensure appropriate support for the protection and conservation of the region’s coral reef and associated ecosystems and for the resiliency of coastal communities against climate change.


Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB’s operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, ADB does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
