Cofinancing operations enable ADB’s financing partners, governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and commercial organizations to participate in financing ADB projects. Additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, technical assistance, other concessional financing, and commercial cofinancing such as B loans, risk transfer arrangements, parallel loans and equity, guarantee cofinancing, and cofinancing for transactions under ADB’s Trade Finance Program.
Partnering with ADB allows donors to participate in the economic and social development of the world’s fastest growing region. With a presence in 49 developing member countries (DMCs) in Asia and the Pacific, ADB’s breadth in operations adds value to programs cofinanced with partners. Founded in 1966, ADB has a deep understanding of the region and its needs, as well as close and tested relationships with its DMCs.
