Together We Deliver 2015: Partnerships against Poverty

Strong partnerships create better outcomes by improving coordination, providing specialized knowledge and expertise, and convening larger amounts of financing for ADB projects. 

Fourteen stories from across Asia and the Pacific highlight successful projects that demonstrate development impact, best practices, and innovation. They were implemented through the hard work of ADB’s developing member countries in partnership with ADB project teams and other partners. The results of these projects have changed and will continue to change the lives of people in Asia and the Pacific. 

About the publication

Together We Deliver is jointly produced by ADB and its developing member countries as a companion publication to the Development Effectiveness Review report.
