The additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, technical assistance, other concessional cofinancing, 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.
