Results of ADB-Supported Operations: Philippines

The Philippines is a founding member of ADB and holds a special place as the home to its headquarters. Between 2003 and 2008, ADB was instrumental in helping the government in carrying out critical fiscal reforms that led to an improved national budget balance. ADB also supported various sectors including energy, transport, and finance.

ADB's new country partnership strategy for 2011-2016 is closely aligned with the Philippine Development Plan (2011-2016), which focuses on achieving high, inclusive, and sustainable growth through employment generation and poverty reduction, with emphasis on good governance and anticorruption measures.

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

* Ratings are based on project completion reports (PCRs) issued in 2010-2013. These ratings are updated when project completion report validation and/or project/program performance evaluation reports become available. As the PCR for each project is usually prepared 12-24 months after project completion, the figures may include information from projects completed earlier than 2010.

Transmission lines installed or upgraded between 2010-2013: 117 kilometers

Length of power, gas, and oil transmission lines (ground distance in kilometers). For power transmission lines, this should be the simple distance from tower A to tower B and not the circuit-kilometer.

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.
