Poverty and Social Analysis Training

10 October 2017
ADB Headquarters, Mandaluyong City

The training  provided an overview of the poverty and social analysis (PSA) documentation requirements. Participants were given the opportunity to engage with urban and social development specialists on key issues in the sector and learn how good PSA can support project design and implementation. They  also worked on a case study exercise to develop the required documentation for IPSA. Urban development practitioners presented the tools utilized, community consultation processes undertaken during processing and implementation, the challenges in implementation and monitoring, and the resulting project documentation including a social development action plan.
