In the Spotlight

Assistance from ADB has helped to strengthen Pakistan’s social and environmental safeguards, integrate environmentally sustainable measures into government projects and programs, and strengthen public communication and information sharing with partners.

Today, ADB remains one of Pakistan’s largest development partners, having provided more than $25 billion in loans, as well as more than $200 million in grants, as of 31 December 2014. This funding has included 316 loans to improve Pakistan’s infrastructure and services, and to support reforms.
