ADB’s Strategy 2030 identifies "Making Cities More Livable" as one of its seven operational priorities for achieving its vision of a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific.
By cutting across sectors and themes, ADB helps cities in the region to become more livable. ADB supports cities by improving urban infrastructure and services, and fostering inclusive, participatory and integrated planning. This approach spans the spatial, transport, economic, and natural capital sectors. ADB also promotes regional value chains and global production networks, along with strengthening municipal finance, governance, and citizen engagement. ADB supports cities to become resilient to not only disasters and climate change, but also to shocks and stresses such as pandemics.
