Evaluation on ADB Support for Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development


This sector-wide evaluation covers a 13-year period from 2005 through 2017, with an emphasis on the period since 2008 following the adoption of ADB’s Strategy 2020. During the evaluation period, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) support for the agriculture, natural resources, and rural development (ANRRD) sector amounted to $12.2 billion. ANRRD lending as a share of total ADB lending for the 2005–2017 period fluctuated between 2% and 12% per year. This evaluation is guided by the Operational Plan for Agriculture and Natural Resources and the portfolio classified by ADB as ANRRD. The evaluation is part of a new series of sector-wide evaluations undertaken by the Independent Evaluation Department.
