Asian Development Bank and Sri Lanka: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2012
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Samoa as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has worked closely with the Government of Sri Lanka since it joined ADB as a founding member in 1966. ADB’s country partnership strategy (CPS) 2012–2016, approved in 2011, was developed in close consultation with other development partners. ADB coordinates closely with the Japan International Cooperation Agency and the World Bank on portfolio management issues and across sectors. Under the North East Community Restoration and Development Project (NECORD), ADB has administered grants from Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), and the Government of Norway for livelihood support and rural electrification. ADB’s extensive cooperation with development partners has contributed to greater coherence and harmonization of development assistance. ADB successfully implemented road rehabilitation projects with financing from the European Union and a livelihood development project funded by the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction. Some funds from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries Fund for International Development were also administered by ADB in various sectors. The Jaffna and Kilinochchi Water Supply and Sanitation Project was also jointly financed by ADB and AFD.
