This sector-wide evaluation covers a 13-year period from 2005 through 2017, with an emphasis on the period since 2008 following the adoption of ADB’s Strategy 2020. During the evaluation period, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) support for the agriculture, natural resources, and rural development (ANRRD) sector amounted to $12.2 billion.
