Pacific Approach, 2010-2014 Implementation Review

Institutional Document | November 2014

This document provides a review of the Pacific Approach, 2010-2014, which has guided ADB's Pacific operations since 2010, and ADB’s country operations in the 10 smallest Pacific developing member countries since mid-2011.

This self-assessment (i) reviews the changes in the Pacific development context and operating environment; (ii) assesses ADB’s performance in implementing the Pacific Approach agenda, priorities, and drivers of change; and (iii) draws lessons to increase the effectiveness of ADB's operations in the region. The results of this assessment will also inform the successor document to the Pacific Approach Framework, which will guide ADB’s operations in the region during 2015–2019.
