ADB’s vision is to achieve a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty.


By targeting its investments wisely in partnership with its stakeholders, ADB helps its developing members reduce poverty, ensuring that growth is sustainable and inclusive. Economists, sociologists, engineers, gender experts, and environmental scientists are amongst the hundreds of professionals working together at ADB to achieve these goals.


ADB is also a knowledge institution at the forefront of innovative development thinking and practice. Information is spread through regional fora, a growing online presence, social media channels, and the publication of specialized papers, periodicals, and books.


ADB is a multilateral development bank with headquarters in Manila, resident missions across the Asia and Pacific region, and representative offices in Tokyo, Frankfurt, and Washington, DC.
