ADB's Efforts to Make its Assistance More Effective

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to supporting the international aid effectiveness agenda. It took part in the first High-Level Forum on Harmonization (HLF-1) in Rome in February 2003; the Second High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF-2) in Paris, which led to the Paris Declaration in March 2005; and the Third High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF-3) in Accra in September 2008, from which the Accra Agenda for Action emerged. ADB organized and participated in a number of key events, notably the regional consultation workshops in preparation for HLF-2 and HLF-3, the post-Paris consultations and monitoring surveys, and the managing for development results round tables and related activities. This brief is a summary of ADB's aid effectiveness initiatives.
