Description

ADB should ensure that its limited resources are used to help countries achieve sustainable development

Challenge

How can donors and partner countries manage scarce development assistance as effectively as possible to achieve sustainable development results?

Strategy

ADB endorsed the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness in 2005 and its follow-up agreement, the Accra Agenda for Action in 2008, alongside other members of the international development community. These commit ADB to make aid more effective by 2010, and to ensure that it provides assistance in a clearly defined, transparent, harmonized, and mutually accountable way.

Response

In collaboration with our development partners, ADB is making our assistance more effective and will continue to do so through a variety of planned initiatives.
