Financing Partnerships at a Glance

ADB’s support for its developing member countries (DMCs) in 2022 focused on these broad areas: tackling crosscutting and global challenges such as climate change and food insecurity; enhancing economy-wide resilience and strengthening the enabling environment for recovery and growth; and rapidly responding to crises in several DMCs. ADB’s long-term partnerships played a major role in mobilizing financial resources and specialist knowledge for these interventions.

Commitments from ADB’s resources—loans, grants, guarantees, technical assistance (TA), and equity investments—totaled $20.5 billion for 141 projects, 285 TA operations, and over 10,000 transactions under private sector programs. ADB mobilized $11.4 billion from its financing partners, supporting 75 projects, 87 TAs, 3 transaction advisory services, and over 10,000 transactions under private sector programs.
