Access to Information
In the Spotlight
ADB has reviewed its Public Communications Policy (PCP) which governs the release of ADB information and documents to external stakeholder. The proposed revised policy, to be called the Access to Information Policy, will be discussed by ADB’s Board of Directors on 28 September 2018.
ADB’s Board of Directors has approved Strategy 2030, which sets out the institution’s broad vision and strategic response to the evolving needs of Asia and the Pacific.
ADB ranked first in the 2018 Aid Transparency Index, compiled by British nongovernment organization Publish What You Fund, in recognition of its ongoing efforts to improve the quality and scope of its aid data disclosure.
ADB's Public Communications Policy (PCP) 2011 strengthens the previous policy by expanding the scope and type of information ADB makes publicly available. It also allows for earlier disclosure of most Board documents, and offers a more effective framework for proactively disclosing information and responding to information requests on a timely basis.
