Chair’s Summary - Workforce Rebalancing Framework

Institutional Document | October 2021

This document summarizes the discussion of the meeting of the ADB Board of Directors held on 27 October 2021 discussing the Workforce Rebalancing Framework.

The Board of Directors approved the recommendation of the policy paper on the Workforce Rebalancing Framework. The framework proposed shifting sourcing of skills from technical assistance (TA) consultants to staff by creating about 200 new staff positions between 2022 and 2027 and reducing TA consultants funded from the Technical Assistance Special Fund (TASF) and other special funds (OSFs) for TA. This will enhance the in-house capacity of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to develop knowledge solutions, improve its engagement with the developing member countries (DMCs), and strengthen greater field presence with quality policy dialogue.
