The Development Effectiveness Committee (DEC) was established by ADB's Board of Directors in December 2000. DEC initiated its activities on behalf of the Board in 2001.

  • reports to the Board on high-priority operations evaluation issues, if any, that have a significant bearing on the relevance, efficiency, and effectiveness of ADB, and make recommendations on such issues to the Board
  • monitors and reports to the Board on the implementation of its decisions
  • reviews the annual programs for preparation of project completion reports and technical assistance completion reports
