ADB-Pakistan Partnership Strategy

The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2015-2019 for Pakistan is designed to support the government in improving connectivity, productivity, and access to markets and public services. It has a provisional assistance package of at least $1.2 billion a year on average, which will focus on infrastructure upgrades and institutional reforms. Assistance will target six sectors: energy; transport; agriculture, natural resources and rural development; water and other urban infrastructure and services; public sector management; and the finance sector. The bulk of the assistance is earmarked for infrastructure improvements in the power, transport, agriculture, and urban services sectors.

The country operations business plan (COBP) 2018-2020 of ADB for Pakistan is aligned with ADB’s country partnership strategy, 2015-2019, which supports the Government of Pakistan’s objective of high, sustained, and inclusive growth.

The Access to Information Policy recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
