Overview

The overarching goal of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is to achieve sustainable results in reducing poverty in the Asia and Pacific region. To be effective, development operations must respond to the needs of the people, especially the poor. And engagement with stakeholders must take place at all stages of the operational cycle including policy and strategy formulation, project development, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.

In ADB operations, participation enables support and ownership by a range of stakeholders, improves project processing and quality of entry, improves quality during implementation, and strengthens sustainability of development results. Civil society and other stakeholders play a key role with their expertise and knowledge of participatory processes to improve the quality of participation in ADB’s operations. 

An ADB Guide to Participation, Strengthening Participation for Developmental Results, is the source of content from this e-course. This publication also complements other initiatives for improving ADB’s engagement of stakeholders and its overall performance. Such include the Managing for Development Results initiative, continuing efforts to improve design and monitoring frameworks, information disclosure and communication through the Public Communications Policy, and broader work on social analysis. The Guide and this accompanying e-course is a welcome addition to ADB’s resources for improving the quality of services to our DMCs.
