dc.description.abstractAccurate, concise, and readable communication is essential to the work of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). If ADB’s language is unclear, verbose, or inconsistent, its message will be obscured and its operations undermined. The ADB Handbook of Style and Usage will make the preparation of written material simpler for ADB staff members and consultants, and will significantly improve the quality and consistency of ADB documents and publications. It addresses a wide range of style and language issues including abbreviations, capitalization, referencing, and the proper presentation of ADB member names. The most up-to-date version of the handbook, incorporating any revisions since this printing, can be found on e-Board and on adb.org. The handbook is a joint publication of the Office of the Secretary (which is responsible for editing documents sent to the Board of Directors) and the Department of External Relations (which oversees the editing of ADB publications). The Handbook of Style and Usage is approved by Management.
