ADB works in partnership with development agencies, donors, and networks on knowledge sharing, capacity development, and institutional strengthening to support regional and sub-regional governance and public management reforms.
ADB-OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific
The ADB-OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific has 31 member economies committed to action against corruption. It supports the member governments' efforts through fostering policy dialogue, policy analysis, and regional knowledge sharing.
Launched in 1999, the Initiative is jointly managed by ADB and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and supported by a number of regional and international organizations and donors.
Open Government Partnership
The Open Government Partnership is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.
Launched in 2011 by 8 founding governments (Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Norway, the Philippines, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States), the Partnership has since then welcomed the commitment of 57 additional governments. ADB joined the Partnership in 2014, and will support open government efforts of partner countries in Asia.
Development Partners Network on Decentralisation and Local Governance
The Development Partners Network on Decentralisation and Local Governance (DeLoG) aims at improving development effectiveness in the field of decentralization and local governance through the promotion of more harmonized and aligned interventions.
Established in 2006 and composed of 29 bi- and multilateral partners, the network acts as a platform for the exchange of experiences and knowledge. ADB became a member of the network in 2015.
OECD-DAC Network on Governance
The OECD Development Assistance Committee Network on Governance (GovNet) brings together experts to explore and promote more effective governance in developing countries. Created in 1995, the network is open to experts and practitioners from development co-operation and multilateral agencies. ADB joined GovNet in 2001.
