Evaluation Document | 10 June 2022

The Independent Evaluation Department (IED) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) validated the final review of ADB’s Kazakhstan country partnership strategy (CPS) 2017–2021. As in the CPS final review, the validation assessed ADB operations that were approved, ongoing, or closed from January 2017 to March 2021. The validation was primarily based on information presented in the CPS final review. It also used evidence gathered through document reviews, portfolio analysis, and consultations with stakeholders during a virtual mission conducted in September–October 2021. The mission interviewed ADB staff based in headquarters and the Kazakhstan Resident Mission, major government counterparts, project entities, development partners, and nongovernment organizations.
