Project Summary, Objectives and Results
On 6 December 2002, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the Education Sector Development Program (the program) for Uzbekistan comprising: (i) a policy-based loan (the program loan), and (ii) an investment loan (the project loan) in support of sector reforms. The program covered the entire country. The project was largely based on the findings and recommendations of a project preparatory technical assistance (TA). The $70.0 million program loan aimed to facilitate implementation of urgent reform measures affecting the entire sector; the project loan was to fund key investments aimed at improving the quality of basic education and sector management practices. The program loan implemented policy, legal, and institutional reforms over 3 years.
