This evaluation focuses on the performance of ADB’s decentralization for quality service delivery and development effectiveness and provides policy recommendations.
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. The study aims to generate findings and recommendations to guide ADB in its future use of technical assistance.
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. 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.
ONGOING EVALUATION. This thematic evaluation aims to shed light on the challenges and opportunities in promoting inclusive growth by examining ADB’s support to developing member countries in this area. 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 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.
ONGOING EVALUATION. The special evaluation study aims to understand how ADB’s private sector operations are contributing to inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth as part of the efforts to promote private sector investments and growth, and how ADB can position itself to achieve stronger development impact, directly or indirectly.
