The Asian Development Bank’s Transitional Results Framework, 2017–2020

Institutional Document | November 2017

This extension will introduce a transitional results framework for 2017–2020 by revising or retaining the corporate targets that expired in 2016. ADB has started to prepare a new long-term strategy—Strategy 2030—to ensure that the bank remains relevant and effective in meeting the needs of its developing member countries (DMCs). In 2018, ADB will initiate a comprehensive review to align its corporate results framework with Strategy 2030. When ADB adopts Strategy 2030, the Strategy 2030-aligned results framework will supersede this transitional results framework.
