Driving Results at ADB

Publication | November 2011

Despite being the world's most economically dynamic region, Asia and the Pacific remains home to two-thirds of the world's poor. To help realize its vision of an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) must apply its limited resources in a way that delivers the best possible development results.

To better equip ADB for this task, we are pursuing a deliberate, structured program of managing for development results (MfDR). This program provides the process and tools needed to deliver optimal results and ensure transparency and accountability. We are also supporting our developing member countries' efforts in applying similar tools to manage their development programs.

This brochure explains how we are implanting a focus on results throughout our work.
