Results-Based Lending (RBL) provides an added tool for ADB to better meet the needs of its developing member countries and improve development effectiveness. Its objectives are to

  • increase government’s accountability and incentives to deliver and sustain results,
  • improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government-owned sector programs,
  • promote institutional development,
  • support country ownership,
  • reduce transaction costs, and
  • support development coordination and harmonization when more than one development agency is involved in a program.
