Guides and Manuals

Guides and manuals are materials about procedures used by the Asian Development Bank to instruct, direct, and provide guidelines that have research value and may be useful for other organizations aiming to establish their own guidelines for similar processes. These include handbooks, guidelines, manuals, directories, tip sheets, tool kits, and other instructive materials. They are peer-reviewed within the originating office and approved by the department head. Guides and manuals are typically text-driven and are often low on images.
