dc.description.abstractThe Panel began the process with the metaphorical question, “Is the glass half full or half empty?” with regard to progress in implementing ADB’s Water Policy. Guided by ADB’s vision of Water for All, the Panel finds the glass both “half full” and “half empty.” While ADB has been instrumental in promoting national water policies, water policy reforms, and establishing new institutional frameworks, reforms still lag behind in many countries. Importantly, water resources development is still not integrated into the overall national development strategy in most developing member countries (DMCs). Moreover, many countries do not make the distinction between water as a resource and water as a service and thus lack the necessary institutional and regulatory frameworks to guide work in the sector.

  • Institutional Materials
    Institutional materials are ADB-centric publications and similar materials from other institutions that have elements of being scholarly. Institutional materials may consist of administrative documents, strategy or policy notes and reviews, conference proceedings, operational reports, or project notes that may be of value to researchers and academics. It is possible that these materials may not serve as the primary resource for research work, but they may point researchers to the right direction and give supplemental data.
