Description

ADB works with a broad range of civil society organizations to strengthen our efforts to reduce poverty

Challenge

How can ADB partner more effectively with civil society organizations (CSOs) to reduce poverty in Asia and the Pacific?

Strategy

ADB cooperates with CSOs to increase the effectiveness, quality, and sustainability of our operations.

Response

Our policies, strategies, and practices have been adapted to embrace and facilitate more active collaboration with CSOs. Most recently, our long-term strategic framework for 2008–2020 (Strategy 2020) identifies partnerships with CSOs and other organizations as one of ADB's five drivers of change.
