The long-term strategic framework 2008-2020 (Strategy 2020) envisages the development of a new results framework to monitor the effectiveness of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in realizing its vision of an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. ADB operations will be in line with the priorities established in Strategy 2020.
The proposed results framework was prepared after internal and external consultations during the formulation of Strategy 2020 and the recent Asian Development Fund (ADF) X negotiations. At the final meeting of the ADF X negotiations on 30 April 2008 in Madrid, the ADF deputies discussed and endorsed a similar results framework for ADF operations. The proposed ADB results framework, while sharing common indicators with the ADF X results framework, contains baselines and targets relevant for ADB as a whole. It will be an important tool to help Management monitor ADB's performance in implementing Strategy 2020.
