Sector-wide Evaluation: ADB’s Support for the Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development Sector
This evaluation finds that ADB’s overall support for sustainable agriculture and food security has been significant in terms of lending volume, but modest on results. This assessment is based on the weakness of ADB’s strategic guidance, limited development outcomes, and inadequate institutional arrangements for delivery.
The evaluation provides an independent assessment of ADB’s engagements in state-owned enterprise (SOE) reforms and draws lessons for future engagement with them. The evaluation is to inform the ADB Board and Management of ADB’s experience to date with SOE reforms and to guide ADB’s engagement with SOEs as it implements the corporate Strategy 2030.
