Evaluation Resources

This study assesses ADB’s operations in promoting inclusive growth during 2000–2012. This is a timely exercise as it comes at the halfway mark of Strategy 2020’s term. The study looks at how ADB set and monitored its institutional priorities for promoting inclusive growth at the corporate level and through its country operations. 

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 evaluation focuses on the performance of ADB’s decentralization for quality service delivery and development effectiveness and provides policy recommendations.

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. The study looks at emerging issues for the new development agenda post-2015 to feed into ADB’s contribution to that agenda. It covers ADB’s portfolio from 2002 to 2011.

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. 

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.
