Assessing Impact in the Greater Mekong Subregion: An Analysis of Regional Cooperation Projects


  • Asian Development Bank (ADB)


Cooperation among the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) countries has intensified in recent years. By the end of 2012, the program had mobilized $15.5 billion in investment projects and $311 million in technical assistance (TA), of which ADB’s support amounted to $5.5 billion for investments and $108.2 million for TA. This study summarizes a recent major initiative to assess the initial impact of ADB-supported projects under the GMS Program. As part of this exercise, a range of representative projects in the road transport, health, tourism, and energy sectors were selected for detailed analysis, and research institutes working with international consultants assessed their socioeconomic impact.
