Annual Report on Loan and Technical Assistance Portfolio Performance for the Year Ending 31 December 2002

Date: April 2003
Type: Statutory Reports and Official Records
ADB administration and governance; Evaluation
Series: Annual Report on Portfolio Performance


This is the second Annual Report on Loan and Technical Assistance Portfolio Performance—previously the report was prepared semiannually. It is also the second time the Operations Evaluation Department (OED) has prepared the report. The responsibility for report preparation was transferred to OED to give effect to the Medium-Term Strategy undertaking that OED would carry out regular portfolio evaluation reviews to support the assessment of development impact and country performance. The Central Operations Services Office (COSO) continues to be responsible for the production of statistics on portfolio performance and preparation of quarterly portfolio updates. Unless otherwise noted, the data in this report was provided by COSO and is of 31 December 2002. Most was previously circulated to the Development Effectiveness Committee of the Board of Directors in the Quarterly Portfolio Update as of 31 December 2002. COSO sources the information from a number of internal databases and directly from regional departments (RDs). Ultimately, the responsibility for the integrity of most of the data rests with the RDs.
