This Learning Lessons reviews and analyzes lessons drawn from evaluation of Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) support to the education sector over the last 10 years. It provides an expanded perspective of the risks that can reduce development effectiveness at the sector, program, and project levels. Lessons presented in this synthesis are not prescriptive. When viewed properly from a contextual perspective, they can help deepen understanding of ADB’s sector experience and provide inputs into the design and delivery of future country partnership strategies, programs, and projects.
