Sector-wide Evaluation: ADB’s 2009 Energy Policy and Program, 2009–2018
ONGOING EVALUATION. This paper sets out the rationale, approach, and methodology for an independent evaluation of the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) current 2009 Energy Policy, and the support of ADB for the development of the energy sector in developing member countries, as well as energy-related interventions in other sectors during the study period, 2009–2018.
The evaluation aims to obtain evidence-based findings as to how effectively ADB helped its clients address energy needs in a sustainable and integrated manner towards achieving inclusive economic growth which is environmentally sustainable. The evaluation will assess the ADB’s 2009 energy policy and energy-related activities approved and/or implemented during the 2009–2018 study period, addressing its ability to guide investments in a rapidly changing environment; and learning from this experience to better calibrate future assistance for achieving successful development outcomes.
