Pakistan: Sector Assessment Review
Asian Development Bank | October 2003
In October 1997 the first sector assessment review of Pakistan's country program was circulated in the Projects Departments. A second review two years later was done following the submission of the 1999 Country Assistance Program (CAP) and incorporating the main features of the cooperative work of bank departments. The present Sector Assessment Review of ADB operations in Pakistan concentrates on strategic focus, portfolio performance and impact of ADB's assistance since 1999 and follows the approval of the Country Strategy and Program (CSP) 2002-2006 in May 2002 and approval of the CSP Update (CSPU) in August 2003. It is intended as a basis for discussion of sector priorities and to focus on the coverage of priority areas and concerns, including the constraints and realities of government policies, programs and institutions. This report will help the South Asia Department (SARD) to evaluate the country's situation, moving beyond macroeconomic analysis to provide a clear understanding of outstanding issues and key development challenges in individual sectors; it will serve as an advocacy document with the government and other donors and as an input into prospective CSP/CSPU processes. The sector assessment will be updated periodically to reflect developments in the sectors concerned. Assistance, contributions, and suggestions from staff in other Departments and Divisions will be appreciated.
