Evaluation Resources

This report assesses ADB support for enhancing governance and draw on lessons and evidence from the broader global experience. The evaluation provides guidance to strengthen the effectiveness of future work in this area. The findings will also feed into the midterm review of Asian Development Fund (ADF) XI, to take place in late 2014.

This thematic evaluation study seeks to understand how ADB has been contributing towards private sector development by improving the enabling environment for private sector businesses to identify ways of enhancing such efforts in line with Strategy 2020 objectives.

This study shows that ADB’s support has been relevant and responsive to the sector development needs of developing member countries. ADB support performed reasonably well at the macro level in easing regulatory and policy constraints. However, it was less than effective in market and institutional development, sustainability of microfinance operations, and outreach to the poor.
