ADB continued to provide agile and tailored support to its developing members in 2021, balancing the need to address short-term COVID-19 response with ensuring longer-term pandemic recovery. ADB’s strong and reliable long-term partnerships played a major role in mobilizing financial resources and specialist knowledge during the pandemic.

ADB’s sovereign cofinancing has settled back closer to pre-pandemic levels, due to the fewer projects approved, influenced by restricted working and travel practices, and challenges in implementing programs and funds. Meanwhile, nonsovereign cofinancing reached a new height due to the increased volume of trade finance cofinancing. About 69% of total cofinancing resources were dedicated to COVID-19 response and recovery.

The ADB Partnership Report 2021: Partnerships for a Green, Inclusive, and Resilient Recovery highlights the work of ADB and its partners in cofinancing development work in 2021, including its continuing support for COVID-19 pandemic responses across the Asia and Pacific region.

The ADB Partnership Report 2021 will be launched via Facebook event, LinkedIn event, and YouTube Premiere.
