Afghanistan and ADB
ADB has placed its regular assistance to Afghanistan on hold effective 15 August 2021. ADB is closely monitoring the situation in Afghanistan and remains committed to supporting the Afghan people.
ADB works jointly with international development agencies, multilateral and bilateral institutions, the private sector, and other emerging development partners to fund activities that improve people's lives in the region.
ADB assists developing member country governments and private sector borrowers in securing debt financing on commercial terms for ADB projects through engagement with commercial financial institutions.
Most of ADB's lending comes from its ordinary capital resources, offered at near-market terms to lower- to middle-income countries.
