Financing Partnerships at a Glance

ADB continued to provide agile and tailored support to its developing member countries in 2021, balancing the need to address short-term COVID-19 response with ensuring longer-term pandemic recovery. ADB’s robust and reliable long-term partnerships played a major role in mobilizing financial resources and specialist knowledge during the pandemic.

Commitments from ADB’s resources (loans, grants, guarantees, technical assistance, and equity investments) totaled $22.8 billion in 2021. From its financing partners, ADB mobilized $12.9 billion—around $5 billion for sovereign cofinancing and nearly $8 billion for nonsovereign cofinancing.
