Setting out ADB’s ambitious climate targets, this publication lays out how ADB plans to catalyze climate finance and incentivize innovation to help shepherd Asia and the Pacific towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.
As specified in the Evaluation Policy of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Board of Directors is responsible for approving the rolling 3-year work program of the Independent Evaluation Department (IED) after it is reviewed and endorsed by the Development Effectiveness Committee. The Work Program for 2024−2026 was discussed and subsequently endorsed by the committee on 15 September 2023.
In developing the work program, IED consulted ADB Management and considered Strategy 2030 priorities, the new operating model, and other institutional changes in ADB, and issues of interest and relevance to member countries and the Asia and Pacific region.
This guide assesses transport networks across Asia and the Pacific, outlines challenges posed by rapid urbanization and climate change, and assesses how ADB can help improve the sector and drive equitable development and economic growth.
In March 2015, the Board of Directors of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the Faster Approach to Small Nonsovereign Transactions (FAST), a multiyear pilot to improve ADB’s operational efficiency for smaller nonsovereign transactions. In May 2022, after 7 years of implementation, the Board approved the Enhanced Faster Approach to Small Nonsovereign Transactions, which mainstreamed the pilot and modified the original framework’s parameters.
This paper serves as the 2022 annual report on FAST covering transactions approved under the pilot and revised frameworks.
