2023 Annual Evaluation Review: What Explains ADB’s Project Performance, 2016–2022

Evaluation Document | 16 August 2022

ONGOING EVALUATION: The Annual Evaluation Review (AER) provides the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Board, Management, and other stakeholders with an independent, high-level perspective on development effectiveness based on findings and evidence from the Independent Evaluation Department’s (IED) evaluations and validations of ADB’s self-evaluation reports. 

The AER has three main objectives: (i) to present a synthesis of ADB’s performance and results at the levels of operations, programs, and strategies; (ii) to review management actions in response to recommendations of IED evaluations; and (iii) to promote learning and knowledge sharing concerning ADB’s performance or performance management.

The 2023 AER is scheduled for discussion at the ADB Board in April 2023.
