Focus Areas

The Asian Development Fund (ADF) is guided by the Strategy 2020 vision of an Asia-Pacific free of poverty and promotes three complementary development agendas of inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional cooperation and integration.

Inclusive Economic Growth

Fostering Growth that Reaches All
To promote a more inclusive growth, ADB has supported investments in infrastructure—roads, water, energy and other services—to help raise productivity, create jobs, reduce poverty and promote trade and investments.

Environmentally Sustainable Growth

Growth for a Green Future
ADF assistance supports infrastructure investments in clean, efficient, and climate-resilient energy systems; efficient and sustainable modes of transportation; increased access to reliable and affordable water and sanitation; and climate-resilient and livable cities.

Regional Cooperation and Integration

Partnering for Shared Prosperity
With its decades of experience in the region, ADB can serve as a catalyst for regional cooperation and integration (RCI), linking national and regional priorities.
