In Focus: Managing for Development Results

Publication | April 2011

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


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?


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


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.
