Description

In 1999, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) renewed its dedication to poverty reduction as its overarching goal and mission. Its comprehensive long-term strategy for poverty reduction is built on the three pillars of (i) pro-poor, sustainable economic growth, (ii) social development, and (iii) good governance, all of which are at the center of the agenda of nongovernment organizations (NGOs) involved in development. Therefore, NGO activity now influences or will affect virtually every aspect of ADB
