This evaluation focuses on the performance of ADB’s decentralization for quality service delivery and development effectiveness and provides policy recommendations.
ONGOING EVALUATION. This study will review ADB’s portfolio to assess the progress towards the mainstreaming of support for climate change mitigation and adaptation. In line with Strategy 2020, the study will also provide lessons and recommendations based on the regional context to enable ADB to increasingly support its developing member countries—as knowledge provider and financing facilitator—in enhancing climate resilience, reducing vulnerability and exposure to climate change, and moving to a low-carbon growth path in the coming years.
ONGOING EVALUATION. An operational review in phase 1 of this evaluation will examine the effectiveness of ADB’s approach to support the strengthening and effective application of country safeguard systems by its developing member countries, and the degree and effectiveness of the implementation of safeguard requirements for financial intermediary projects.
ONGOING EVALUATION. This thematic evaluation study will assess the strategic relevance of technical assistance within ADB and look at how technical assistance can better contribute to development effectiveness.

ONGOING EVALUTION. The evaluation will examine ADB’s governance policies and plans and appraisal of its governance operations over the past decade. By evaluating ADB’s governance experience and drawing on lessons and evidence from the wider global experience, the evaluation will provide guidance to strengthen the effectiveness of ADB’s future work in this area. The evaluation findings will feed directly into the 2014 midterm review of Asian Development Fund XI.
This evaluation study assesses the alignment of ADB’s corporate strategies to the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and considers whether setting global targets made a difference to the development results in the region’s developing countries.

It explores the relevance and responsiveness of ADB’s efforts to encourage inclusive growth and draws lessons for policymaking. The study also needs to look at the issues underpinning inclusive growth, and methods of monitoring and measuring its progress.
This evaluation examines the costs and benefits associated with the multitranche financing facility modality, by considering efficiency gains or cost reductions as well as gains in development effectiveness. The evaluation reviews whether lessons or initial outcomes before it was mainstreamed led to any changes in policy for the facility or operating requirements to improve its effectiveness. The study also provides insights into the future design of multitranche financing facility interventions.
This ongoing evaluation will assess the development outcome of selected road projects in Bangladesh, provide evidence of poverty impacts of road interventions, and fill in the knowledge gap. The study will (i) measure impacts that are attributed to the projects in achieving the intended impacts and outcomes; (ii) help improve ADB‟s operational effectiveness at the project level; and (iii) enhance the relevance of ADB corporate results framework.
This study identifies lessons to help ADB become a stronger knowledge institution. It looks back to assess past accomplishments against expectations, as well as looking forward to determine what features are essential to make ADB more effective as a knowledge institution and how these features can be adapted to the changing context of the Asia and Pacific region.
