The conclusion from Independent Evaluation's Inclusion, Resilience, Change: ADB's Strategy 2020 at Mid-Term is that ADB's best contribution lies in supporting broad-based green growth and wider access to growth opportunities and services, particularly of the poor. Betting on green growth may well hold some wins for inclusive growth.

All this comes at a time when ADB's portfolio gives indications of improved performance, as this AER signals. Sustaining and deepening that improvement would rest both on strategic choices in the portfolio and follow-up of implementation supervision.
