Description:
The purpose of the evaluation was to clarify what constitutes the added value of a regional approach to developments efforts and to inform preparations of the new regional strategy for Asia 2010 - 1014. The evaluation concludes that there is an added value due to the facts that regional cooperation provides the opportunity for Sida to support cooperation on problems requiring cross-border action; leads to a number of complementary development effects such as cooperation at the regional level enhancing dialogue and coordination among the participating countries; and leverages Sweden’s comparative advantages to the region (including strengths in environmental techniques, research capacity, public administration, and financial resources).
