Evaluation Resources

To what extent and how effectively has ADB responded to the social protection needs in Asia and the Pacific since the approval of the Social Protection Strategy in 2001. This is the focus of this special evaluation study with the object of informing future ADB support to social protection in Asia and the Pacific.

The special evaluation study will assess the relevance of ADB's Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy, the adequacy of ADB response to disaster and disaster risks in the Asia and Pacific region, and the development of good practices for implementation of ADB operations and country programming. 

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.

This thematic evaluation study aims to understand how private sector operations, which accounted for 9% of total operations during 2000–2012, are contributing to inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth as part of efforts to promote private sector investments and growth. The study primarily seeks to identify lessons from relevant experience with a view to informing the selection, design, and monitoring of future private sector operations.
