My government is interested in cofinancing with ADB, what’s the process?

  • ADB’s Strategic Partnerships Division manages partnerships and establishes cofinancing relationships with partners. Its Partner Funds Division administers single-donor trust funds, project-specific cofinancing, and global funding initiatives.
  • ADB invites potential cofinanciers to participate in project processing missions in order to incorporate their inputs at an early stage of the project cycle.
  • The borrower requests cofinancing for an ADB-assisted project.
  • ADB determines the scope, the possible sources, and the mode of cofinancing. Depending on the procurement policies and the project requirements, cofinancing can be arranged on either a parallel financing or a joint financing basis.
  • ADB coordinates official assistance with its development partners, with a view to enhancing its development impact by avoiding duplication and ensuring consistent policies.
  • ADB usually requires the cofinancier's commitment during or immediately after fact-finding for a TA operation and well before loan negotiations when considering the provision of a loan.
  • Depending on the extent of ADB's role in administering the funds provided by official sources on a joint or parallel basis, ADB may enter into a separate agreement with the cofinancier specifying the responsibilities of ADB and the cofinancier.
  • To find suitable projects for cofinancing, cofinanciers may refer to
  • You may send inquiries on financing partnerships through the information request form.
