E. Memorandum of understanding regarding cooperation between the African Development bank and the food and agriculture organization of the united nations
The African Development Bank (hereinafter referred to as "ADB") and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (hereinafter referred to as "FAO") have already been cooperating on matters of common concern. As the occasions on which this cooperation is desirable are steadily increasing and in view of the large area of common interest between the two organizations, the President of ADB and the Director-General of FAO, subject to the approval of the governing bodies of ADB and FAO, are agreed upon the following guidelines which set forth the principles upon which a systematic approach to cooperative efforts between their respective organizations may be based.
SECTION I. The Scope of Cooperation between ADB and FAO
ADB and FAO will cooperate in the following fields, in countries of common membership:
(b) Identifying projects which might be financed by ADB.
(c) Assisting governments in the preparation of projects which might be financed by ADB.
(d) Appraising projects referred to in (b) and (c) above.
(e) Providing end-use supervision of the execution and operation of ADB-financed projects.
(f) Arranging for technical assistance required for the implementation of ADB-financed projects.
SECTION II. Methods of Cooperation
2. ADB and FAO shall, to the extent permitted under their respective approved budgets, agree upon specific operations regarding which cooperation is desirable, and upon the extent and methods in which such cooperation shall be effected. ADB and FAO shall, to the maximum extent possible, assist each other in matters of common concern through the support of their respective Headquarters and field facilities.
General review missions organized by ADB may be required to give specific attention to the agricultural sector. FAO will, in agreed cases, cooperate in the preparation of such missions and/or provide the services of specialists to take part in them.
(b) Identification Missions
ADB and FAO shall agree on identification missions to examine in specific countries the possibility of formulating particular projects which might be eligible for lending operations.
(c) Preparation Missions
ADB may receive requests for loans requiring further preparation before they are considered. Similarly, as a result of identification missions, there may be need for further elaboration before such requests can be considered as a basis for loan operations. Where such preparation work is already at an advanced stage, FAO may cooperate with ADB in the undertaking of missions of limited duration. Where such preparation requires feasibility studies, ADB may request FAO to undertake or execute them as FAO may agree, ADB assuming the financing.
(d) Appraisal Missions
ADB will be responsible for the appraisal of projects upon the basis of which its financing decisions will be made. At the request of ADB, FAO may provide, as agreed, the services of FAO staff members or consultants to serve upon such appraisal missions.
(e) End-Use Supervision of ADB Projects
ADB will be responsible for the disbursement of funds and the end-use supervision of the construction and maintenance of physical facilities and to this end will be responsible for such review, as may be appropriate, of the specifications, bids and awards of contracts and for whatever inspections of the project are necessary in this connection. As may be agreed, FAO may provide the services of experts to participate in such supervision. FAO may, in the course of such supervision, advise ADB on the possibility of determining further phases in the implementation of the project and the desirability of preparing second-phase projects. ADB and FAO will consult each other on the results of such end-use supervision and the subsequent steps to be taken.
(f) Planning of Missions
ADB and FAO shall cooperate in planning the missions referred to in sub-paragraphs (a) to (e) above and may hold periodic review meetings in order to coordinate such planning as far ahead as feasible. In particular, ADB and FAO shall consult each other upon the terms of reference, composition, duration, reports and recommendations of each mission. As appropriate, ADB and FAO shall consult each other on the persons most suitable to take part in such missions.
4. Cooperation in Training
(b) ADB and FAO will cooperate in the Organization of seminars, study-tours, and other types of technical training facilities to promote African expertise in the fields of food and agriculture.
5. Assistance in Project Implementation
As may be agreed in each case, and upon the request of the government concerned, FAO shall provide or arrange for technical assistance in the implementation of projects financed by ADB. Such assistance shall be furnished in accordance with paragraph 2(d) (iii) of Section III of this Memorandum of Understanding.
6. ADB/FAO Desk at ADB Headquarters
In order to facilitate the implementation of cooperative efforts, the Director-General of FAO will appoint suitable staff to be stationed in Abidjan who will work in cooperation with counterpart staff appointed by ADB and with other members of ADB staff. The FAO staff referred to above will maintain liaison with ADB regarding matters of common interest; assist ADB in reviewing projects; and participate, as appropriate and as agreed between ADB and FAO, in missions referred to in paragraph 3 above. In addition, such FAO staff in Abidjan and their ADB counterparts will be kept continuously informed of studies undertaken or planned by FAO for Africa and will also be advised of agricultural plans and problems of the African countries insofar as these are likely to affect the operations of ADB.
SECTION III. Financial Arrangements
(b) FAO shall, within the limits set by its biennial budget and as agreed with ADB, contribute to the cooperative activities by providing for service on missions of professional staff stationed at Headquarters or outputted in the field, or additional staff specifically recruited for the cooperative activities.
(c) FAO shall, within the limits set by its biennial budget, assign staff to the ADB/FAO desk referred to in paragraph 6 of Section II above.
(d) FAO shall bear the following expenses arising from cooperative activities with ADB.
2. Obligations of ADB
(b) ADB shall appoint counterpart staff to match the staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
(c) ADB shall provide office space for the FAO staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
(d) ADB shall bear the following expenses arising from cooperative activities with FAO:
(ii) The cost of secretarial staff and office space to service the FAO staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
(iii) The cost of technical assistance directly required for the implementation of ADB-financed projects as provided for in paragraph 5 of Section II above, including an amount covering FAO's estimated administrative costs in arranging for such assistance. The amount covering such administrative costs shall be the equivalent of 12 percent of the direct cost of the assistance, except where assistance is provided under contract between FAO and some outside entity, in which event the amount will be fixed by agreement between FAO and ADB.
(iv) ADB will bear the cost of the production of documents and of translation undertaken by FAO in agreement with ADB.
SECTION IV. Miscellaneous provisions
ADB or FAO may, upon six month's written notice to the other party, terminate this Memorandum of Understanding.
2. Entry into force
This Memorandum of Understanding shall, after approval by the Board of Directors and ratification by the Board of Governors of ADB, and approval by the FAO Council, subject to confirmation by the FAO Conference, enter into force on the date on which it will have been signed by the President of ADB and the Director-General of FAO.
In accordance with Section m, paragraph 1, of this Memorandum of Understanding the maximum contribution by FAO to cooperative activities with ADB for the biennium 1968/69 shall be, subject to approval of the relevant provisions of the budget by the FAO Conference, as follows:
2. Under Section m, paragraph 1(c), FAO assignment of two staff members to the ADB/FAO desk.
F. Note on procedure for ad hoc cooperative action between Asian Development bank and FAO
1. At this early stage, when the scope and nature of the Asian Development Bank's (ADB's) agricultural operations - as well as the dimensions and nature of financial resources therefor - still have to be defined, it is premature to propose any general agreement to the ADB's Board of Governors for ADB cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). At the same time, there has been need for FAO participation in the current survey of Asian agriculture being sponsored by the ADB and there are indications that ADB and FAO may have occasion in selected instances to cooperate in missions to the developing members of the ADB and in other ways. This memorandum is intended to permit expeditions and flexible implementation in those instances where the ADB and FAO agree that some combination of personnel in a mission or other cooperation is desirable.
2. It is the intention of the ADB and FAO that the two organizations will keep each other informed of operations of mutual interest and likely to involve joint participation in missions.
3. It is understood also that final decisions with respect to use of the ADB's resources must rest with the ADB.
4. The contents of this memorandum will not prejudice cooperation by either organization with other entities on the types of operation outlined in this memorandum.
5. It is recognized that this memorandum is of an interim nature and that review of its contents from time to time is desirable. It is envisaged that a meeting will take place around June 1968 for this purpose.
II. Areas of Possible Cooperation
6. FAO and ADB have already cooperated within the framework of the Regional Agricultural Survey undertaken as a basis for ADB's operations. It is envisaged that they may cooperate in the future in the identification of projects which might be considered for financing by ADB; in carrying out of feasibility studies and in assisting governments to prepare further such projects; in the appraisal of projects presented to ADB for financing; and in the review of progress of projects financed by ADB.
7. There may in addition be scope for cooperation between FAO and ADB in fields not specifically itemized above, such as general studies and technical assistance for the preparation, financing and execution of Development projects and programs; such cases will not be covered in the scope of the arrangements indicated below and will have to be the subject of specific consultation as and when they arise.
III. Joint Participation in Missions
8. Cooperation in missions will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Where an ADB-FAO cooperative mission is deemed appropriate, the following assignment of responsibility will normally apply.
Responsibility as here used involves responsibility for leadership, administrative arrangements, organization of missions, terms of reference, staffing and reports.
Initiation of action for cooperation in missions may be by ADB or FAO as indicated hereunder; the implementation thereof will require concurrence of both parties.
(b) The organization of cooperative project identification and project preparation missions can be initiated by either the ADB or FAO with such assignment of responsibility and on such terms as ADB and FAO may in each specific case agree.
(c) Project appraisal missions following submission of loan applications will be the responsibility of ADB; the ADB may seek FAO participation where deemed appropriate.
(d) Reviews of projects already financed by ADB will be an ADB responsibility; the ADB may seek FAO participation where deemed appropriate.
(e) Responsibility for other missions connected to activities referred to in paragraph 7 will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
9. In all missions undertaken in cooperation and without prejudice to responsibility as indicated above, there will be consultation between the two organizations on staffing, terms of reference, composition and duration, reporting, and recommendations.
10. In the circumstances indicated in Para. 1, the procedures outlined here do not provide for arrangements for FAO personnel to be employed for, and assigned to, cooperative operations on a continuous basis; however, it is evident that the success of cooperative operations will be enhanced the greater the continuity of the staff engaged in these operations. This will, therefore, require advance planning to the maximum extent possible by both institutions, and periodic meetings and consultations.
V. Terms Applicable to ADB-FAO Cooperation in Cases Where Such Cooperation is Deemed Appropriate
11. The FAO has indicated that cost sharing in respect of FAO expenses in any cooperative mission would have to take into account the following items of initial expense in the FAO:
(b) cost of travel and subsistence of the FAO team members;
(c) cost of coordination within the FAO framework;
(d) cost of secretarial assistance;
(e) overhead costs, direct or indirect;
(f) cost of document preparation and translation.
12. Within the limits of present budgetary arrangements, the order of total expenditure on the types of cooperation action contemplated above may not probably exceed a ceiling of $500,000 from now to the close of the biennium 1968-1969. Within this ceiling and during this period, arrangements for sharing expenses of cooperation will be according to the following terms:
(b) The cost of travel, and subsistence expenses of FAO personnel while serving as members of cooperative missions led by the ADB will be borne or provided for by the ADB at ADB rates.
(c) The cost of travel, and subsistence expenses of FAO personnel while serving as members of cooperative missions led by the FAO will be provided for by FAO at FAO rates and will be shared equally with the ADB.
(d) The cost of any special document reproduction and translation undertaken by FAO at the request of ADB will be borne by ADB.
13. When a particular project preparation by a cooperative mission involves continuous work in the field of more than ten man months by FAO personnel, ADB will pay or provide for all direct expenses of FAO services (salaries, allowances, subsistence and other expenses except travel) in excess of this quantity (adding ten percent of the direct expenses to share in FAO's administrative expenses).
14. In cases of FAO cooperation in fields referred to under Sec. II, Para. I, the above terms will not apply, and cost sharing on an ad hoc basis will be arranged.
VI. Entry into Effect
15. These proposals will enter into effect following approval by the ADB Board of Directors and the FAO Council.
