The Work Program and Budget Framework, 2021–2023 (WPBF) describes the indicative projection of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) operations, strategic priorities, institutional reforms, and staff resources and budget requirements for the next 3-year period.

The Work Program and Budget Framework, 2021–2023 (WPBF) was prepared at a critical juncture in Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. It focuses on how ADB continues to address the COVID-19 response and supports developing members counties in green, resilient and inclusive economic recovery during the next 3-year period. Given the changing needs of Asia and the Pacific, the WPBF sets the direction for ADB’s continuous efforts to implement Strategy 2030. The WPBF describes the indicative projection for operations, strategic priorities, institutional reforms, and staff resources and administrative budget requirements of ADB during the next 3-years. The WPBF will also implement a replenished Asian Development Fund (ADF). The ADF 13 replenishment concluded in 2020 will enhance ADB’s support in the poor and most vulnerable countries during the WPBF period.
