ADB offers a range of financial products and services to its member countries, including loans, grants, technical assistance, and policy advice.

In recent years, ADB has placed increasing emphasis on promoting environmental sustainability and addressing climate change in its development programs.

Structure and administration

ADB has a decentralized structure with a network of country offices and regional departments that work closely with governments, development partners, and civil society organizations to design and implement development projects. It also works with other multilateral development banks and international organizations to leverage resources and share knowledge and best practices.
