ADB Water Bonds Brochure

Improving integrated water resources management requires sustained investments to address the water–food–energy nexus, improve the availability and quality of water supply, expand sanitation, and manage water-related disaster risk. ADB is well on track toward the target of increasing the share of sanitation from total water lending to at least 25% by 2020. The Water Financing Partnership Facility, which supports program preparation and implementation, allocated a further $4.3 million. Through these projects, ADB will help improve the lives of around 22 million people.

ADB issued its first water bonds in 2010, raising a total of $638 million. ADB has issued approximately $1.5 billion from its sale of water bonds. Proceeds raised through these bonds will be used for various water-related projects in Asia and the Pacific.
