Road to 2030: ADB's New Strategy

ADB is preparing a new strategy to respond to the changes brought about by a rapidly evolving Asia and the Pacific. The new strategy will:

  • build on the 2014 midterm review of ADB’s long-term strategic framework — Strategy 2020;
  • outline vision and key directions for ADB’s engagement with developing member countries until 2030;
  • describe how ADB aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change; and
  • identify institutional and organizational reforms necessary to sharpen ADB's efficiency and effectiveness.
