This review on the effectiveness of the Department for International Development (DFID)’s engagement with the Asian Development Bank was published in July 2012, and awarded a green-amber score. We made four recommendations, and the follow up to this report was published in June 2014.
This review considers the effectiveness of DFID’s engagement with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and its influence on the Bank’s activities. ADB is one of several multilateral banks that DFID works with to reduce poverty. ADB’s core skills are in delivering large-scale infrastructure projects in middle-income countries, complementing DFID’s focus on the poorest through governance, growth, health and education.
