Description

ADB manages our work to ensure that operations contribute to development and reduce poverty.

Challenge

Despite rapid economic growth in Asia and the Pacific, millions remain poor. Given our limited resources, how can ADB help reduce poverty in the region?

Strategy

ADB operates with increased focus on development results, and helps our member countries build their own capacity for gaining results.

Response

ADB comprehensively monitors delivery of our planned development results and identifies performance weaknesses and actions for improvement. We support country capacity-building and knowledge-sharing initiatives. Countries can then better manage their development programs. We are teaming with our development partners to increasingly coordinate and share knowledge about managing for results.
