Afghanistan and ADB

In the Spotlight

Afghanistan was a founding member of ADB in 1966 and has since been supported by ADB over two periods.

Resuming its partnership with Afghanistan after a hiatus from 1980 to 2001, ADB—in collaboration with other development partners—supports the country’s development in the transport, energy, natural resources, and economic management sectors. Cumulative lending to Afghanistan total almost $1 billion, and committed grants total $3.6 billion. Read the fact sheet: ADB and Afghanistan

ADB assistance is fully on budget and aligned with the government’s strategies and its national priority programs, which are the agreed foundations of the partnership.

Afghanistan is a member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program.
