» History/Background

Results management practitioners from 11 countries in the region came together on 22–23 March 2006 to launch the CoP-MfDR. Participants identified some key trends that had occurred in the Asia and Pacific region that would impact development results. They articulated the need and strategy for such a community over the next few years, and discussed an action plan for its pilot period. By 2005, several countries in the region began introducing MfDR approaches in public sector management. As these experiences were still evolving, countries expressed their desire to learn more about good practices and tools for advancing the MfDR process. APCoP-MfDR was created to meet this demand. ADB finances and supports the operation of APCoP-MfDR, and serves as its Secretariat.

The success of APCoP-MfDR influenced the creation of the Latin American and Caribbean CoP and the African CoP. The OECD-DAC recently reaffirmed regional CoPs as essential hubs for learning and promoting MfDR-based country systems.
