    Sector-wide Evaluation: ADB Energy Policy and Program, 2009–2019

    Economies benefit from abundant access to energy that is efficient, secure, equitable, and environmentally and financially sustainable. Much progress has been made in improving access to electricity in the Asia and Pacific region. Even so, energy reliability and sustainability need to improve. While total energy supply and demand in the region has more than doubled since 2000, the primary energy mix has not changed significantly and is still heavily reliant on coal and crude oil, affecting the long-run sustainability of energy systems.

However, because Asia is home to most of the world’s hungry and most of the poor still live in rural areas and are engaged with agriculture and related activities for their livelihoods, agriculture and rural development remains a cornerstone as countries make this transition.
