ADB's Development Effectiveness: A Forward-Looking Perspective from 2013

3 May 2014, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm, Ceremonial Hall

As the first multilateral development bank to adopt a corporate results framework, ADB was also the first to complete a full revision of its framework. The revised 2013–2016 corporate results framework includes changes to the structure, indicators, and targets. In addition, ADB is undertaking a review of Strategy 2020. The “forward looking perspective” will review performance in the first year of the revised framework, highlighting new results, indicators, and targets. It will also consider linkages to the conclusions of the Strategy 2020 Mid-Term Review.

The seminar will present the findings and recommendations of ADB's 2013 Development Effectiveness Review, its seventh annual corporate performance report, and discuss ADB reform initiatives that respond to the findings of the review.
