Results of ADB-supported Operations: Kazakhstan

ADB's partnership with Kazakhstan was forged in 1994 when it helped the country through the early years of transition from a centrally planned to a more market-driven economy in the post Soviet Union period. ADB's partnership with the country has focused on helping the government sustain a higher growth rate, promote environmentally-friendly development, support the private sector, and connect Kazakhstan with its neighbors.

In the future, ADB proposes to support Kazakhstan in going beyond its middle-income country status. ADB will promote inclusive economic growth and competitiveness through complementary public and private sector investments. ADB will consolidate its resources to support synergized investments in energy, transport, finance, and the urban sectors. These will be complemented by governance, gender equity, regional cooperation and integration, public–private partnership, private sector development and operations, and mitigation of the effects of climate change.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Kazakhstan and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
