Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy An important element of the reform agenda of ADB is the mainstreaming of Managing for Development Results (MfDR). ADB's commitments to MfDR have three pillars: focusing on results orientation at the level of the developing member countries (DMCs), at the institutional level in ADB, and through global partnership. The Action Plan (2006-2008) calls for capacity development in MfDR at the DMC level, including an effective monitoring and evaluation system.
