Institutional Document | October 2013

The Work Program and Budget Framework, 2014-2016 (WPBF) presents a 3-year rolling operational plan to achieve the strategic objectives of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), as set out in Strategy 2020.1 It is guided by the three complementary agendas of Strategy 2020, namely, inclusive growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration, and will focus on the five drivers of change: (i) private sector development (PSD) and private sector operations, (ii) good governance and capacity development, (iii) gender equity, (iv) knowledge solutions, and (v) partnerships. The WPBF underscores the importance of timely achievement of project output and outcomes. Under its Finance++ approach, the WPBF places strong emphasis on leveraging our limited resources through cofinancing, PSD and private sector operations, public-private partnership (PPP) and other means, and making knowledge solutions an integral part of ADB's assistance package.
