Asian Development Bank's Progress on Aid Effectiveness: 2010 Update

Institutional Document | April 2010

This report updates the progress by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in meeting its commitments under the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the 2008 Accra Agenda for Action. It is based on ADB's fourth annual internal survey on aid effectiveness and reflects 2009 data from the same 25 developing member countries included in the previous survey. Unlike the 2009 report, which also reviewed ADB's progress on qualitative issues, this report focuses solely on the quantitative targets set by the Paris Declaration for achievement in 2010.

The report finds that ADB as whole continued to meet the targets on five of the nine relevant Paris Declaration indicators in 2009: aligning aid with national priorities, coordinating technical assistance, using country public financial management systems, reducing parallel project implementation units, and increasing joint missions. It also made significant progress in joint country analytical work. The survey showed that ADB, barring unforeseen circumstances, should achieve the targets on these six indicators in 2010.
