ADB’s Results Framework: Interim Update to Align with the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020

Institutional Document | December 2014

This paper presents an interim update of the 2013–2016 results framework of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), which was approved by ADB’s Board of Directors in January 2013.

In 2008, ADB introduced a corporate results framework to monitor and improve its performance in achieving ADB’s Long-Term Strategic Framework (Strategy 2020) priorities during 2008–2012. Building upon its successful implementation, ADB adopted a revised framework for 2013–2016. This update aims to align the results framework with the outcomes of the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020. The updated results framework will be applied during 2014–2016. In 2015–2016, ADB will initiate a comprehensive review to adopt the results framework for the next cycle, 2017–2020.
