Proposal for ADB’s New Products and Modalities: Policy Paper

Institutional Document | July 2018

This paper targets priority areas where ADB should improve its product range based on developing member countries’ critical needs, gaps in the current product offering, and the expected impacts on key development agenda.

To ensure Strategy 2030 is effectively implemented, ADB launched a review of its products and modalities and formed an ADB-wide task force to identify priority areas for improvement. ADB conducted consultations in 10 developing member countries (DMCs) to better understand their needs, discuss possible improvements to existing products, and assess their demand for new products.

This paper does not cover some products and modalities that have been or will be examined separately. ADB will keep reviewing and refining its products as clients’ needs and operating environments evolve.
