Revised Guidelines for Country Partnership Strategy Results Frameworks

Institutional Document | February 2016

The revised guidelines for country partnership strategy results frameworks are intended to help ADB efficiently apply results frameworks at the country level.

The revised guidelines explain how to prepare results frameworks for the country partnership strategy and country operations business plan. These results frameworks link ADB’s operations and resource allocation with the development outcomes and targets of the partner governments. Changes in the revised guidelines draw on implementation experience of the previous guidelines. The revisions include updates to align with other relevant policies and guidelines, stronger emphasis on overall strategic results, simplified processes, and increased flexibility for responding to different country contexts and changing development needs.
