Aid and Poverty: Probing ADB Programs for Asia’s Poor

About the Issue

This issue of the Reality Check looks into the Asian Development Bank’s mandates, policy priorities, and strategies in eradicating poverty and inequality in Asia and the Pacific using development effectiveness benchmarks and unique perspectives from the civil society.


  • ADB Road Projects and Concerns in Manipur
  • ADB Efforts in Reducing Poverty and Inequality: Indian Case Study
  • The Kyrgyz Republic and the Asian Development Bank: Analysis of Relationships


This Reality Check would not have been possible without the valuable contributions from ROA-AP members, particularly Jiten Yumnam (Centre for Research and Advocacy Manipur), Jyotsna Mohan Singh (Voluntary Action Network India), and Chinara Aitbaeva (Public Union of Nash Vek Youth Movement). Gratitude must also be extended to the Reality of Aid Global and IBON International for their utmost support.
