PSDI Annual Progress Report 2012–2013
This report, which covers calendar year 2012 and up to June 2013, is the sixth progress report of PSDI.
It marks a watershed for, in June 2013, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and PSDI’s bilateral partners, the Australian Government and the New Zealand Aid Program, renewed PSDI for a third phase that will run for 6 years (until June 2019) with significantly increased funding that will allow it to further build on the successes of the first two phases and expand its scope into additional focus areas.
With PSDI moving into its third phase, this report reviews the analytical basis for reform. It departs somewhat from previous progress reports in that there is a brief analytical outline of the issues underlying PSDI's focus areas, initiatives, and reforms to date in the preamble to the chapters. The financial data cover the period January 2007 to 30 June 2013.
