Operations - Project Design and Management
How does ADB design and manage projects?
ADB provides financing for projects in developing member countries (DMCs) that support economic growth and social development. Projects are identified in partnership with DMCs during strategic planning processes.
The various stages that each project goes through, from country programming, project design, to project completion, and evaluation are known collectively as the ADB project cycle.

Project Administration Manual
