ADB Water Bonds Brochure

Publication | August 2015

This brochure provides an overview of ADB's water bonds issued in 2015.

Almost 20 million people across Asia and the Pacific will benefit from ADB’s total water lending of $2.88 billion in 2014—spread across the water and other infrastructure and services sectors—and to the agriculture, natural resources, and rural development sectors. This investment fulfills ADB’s commitment to make water a core area of its operations, and exceeds the annual target of up to $2.5 billion. 

ADB has issued approximately $1.5 billion from its sale of water bonds.
