ADB water operational plan 2011-2020

This plan provides guidance to ADB's regional departments in defining their respective in-country water operations to 2020 and beyond. It considers the improvement of risk management to mitigate floods, droughts, and other water-related disasters as part of an embedded integrated water resources management solution, as well as the multi-dimensional nature of the region’s water crisis, including the mitigation of climate change impacts.

The overall plan has three core elements: (i) deepening and expanding analytical work to improve the informational basis for sound and timely decision making; (ii) advancing inclusive policy reforms that facilitate greater efficiency in water use, including sanitation and link to food and energy; and (iii) strengthening support to priority programs and projects and sustaining annual public investment levels at $2-2.5 billion during the period 2011-2020, plus attracting much more private sector investment. It aims to improve effectiveness and enhance the quality of the outcomes of ADB's water operations.
