Annual Report on the 2007 Country Performance Assessment Exercise

Institutional Document | April 2008

Under the performance-based allocation (PBA) policy for Asian Development Fund (ADF) countries, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) links the allocation of ADF resources to country performance. The underlying premise of the system is that aid is most effective in accelerating poverty reduction in countries where policy and institutional performance are strong. Under the PBA system, ADB gauges the relative performance of all eligible borrowers with access to ADF by conducting country performance assessments (CPAs) annually. This annual report provides information on the conduct and results of the 2007 assessments. It also summarizes progress in harmonizing ADB's allocation system with similar approaches at other multilateral development banks (MDBs).
