Research Program

ADBI research seeks to identify effective development strategies and improve capacity for sound development management in ADB DMCs. It focuses on medium-term and regional issues with strategic implications for development thinking and policy making.

Selection of research topics for 2013 – 2015: (i) use inputs from stakeholders via a needs survey; (ii) build on previous research projects; and (iii) incorporate feedback from research collaborators.

Inquiries are conducted via the network approach. The ADBI works with a variety of regional and non-regional actors, comprising of both in-house and external researchers.

ADBI's research priorities for 2013-2015 are clustered under four headings:

  • projects with crosscutting themes
  • inclusive and sustainable growth
  • regional cooperation and integration, and
  • governance for policies and institutions
