Greater Mekong Subregion Phnom Penh Plan for Development Management (TA)
At the fourth meeting of the Working Group in Human Resources Development in September 2002, a priority need identified by representatives of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) countries was for a critical mass of highly competent and qualified middle-senior level management and technical staff in the public sector that would spearhead socio-economic development of the country as well as promoting regional cooperation. Subsequently, the November 2002 GMS summit recognized the need to address the subregion-s challenges in human resources development, and thus gave birth to the GMS-Phnom Penh Plan for Development Management. The Phnom Penh Plan (PPP) was approved by ADB in October 2002 for an initial amount of $800,000 over two years (2003-2004). The PPP seeks to build the capacity of middle and senior level professionals in governments of the GMS countries. Its focus is on public policy and development management and aims to help GMS governments in improving their development decisions.
