TA Number 4499
Project Number 32312- 01
Thematic Classification Private Sector Development

Description The TA aims to help the Government to prepare the basic education development program (BEDP) so it can start in 2006. BEDP will support the sector reform toward EFA by 2015, which is unlikely to be accomplished in full and on time without the support of a policy-based lending component. Specifically, BEDP will be prepared as sector development program loan (SDP), a combination of an investment (project component) and policy reform (program) component, for implementing relevant portion of the EFA plan and the operational policies for decentralized education management. Preparation of BEDP as an SDP includes (i) sector study; (ii) policy dialogue; (iii) aid coordination; (iv) program design; and (v) project design. In summary, for a program component, the TA will identify the scope of the sector reform and level of support to the adjustment cost during the reform period from 2006 or 2007 for 3 years. For investment component, the TA will identify the investment needs to strengthen primary and lower secondary education and decentralized education management for implementation over approximately 5 years. At the same time the TA will identify financing partners for each component.
