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.
ONGOING EVALUATION. This evaluation will assess the performance of ADB’s decentralization measures for quality service delivery and development effectiveness of ADB’s operations in its developing member countries. The evaluation will provide policy recommendations on decentralization measures moving forward for the effective implementation of the corporate Strategy 2020.
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 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.
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.
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.
