he Asian Development Bank (ADB)has made development eectivenesscentral to its operations. ADB ocuseson practical solutions or sustainabledevelopment through raising growth, buildingcapacity, and speeding up achievement o theMillennium Development Goals.Since Bangladesh became a member o ADBin 1973, ADB has been assisting the countryin improving its physical inrastructure anddeveloping human capital, demonstratingimpressive results. ADB played a major role inassisting Bangladesh to achieve ood (mostlyrice) sel-suciency; improve energy supplyand road transport systems; enhance quality o,and access to, education; and quickly recoverrom the damages caused by repeat naturaldisasters. ADB’s assistance in developing ruralinrastructure contributed to linking producerswith markets, inusing dynamism in the ruraleconomy and creating jobs in the rural areas. The urban poor have better access to municipalservices, as, with ADB’s active engagement, thecapacity o the local bodies has been raised andgovernance improved. By introducing clean uel(compressed natural gas) or transportation,ADB helped improve the Dhaka city’s air quality,which once was among the worst in the world.With assistance rom ADB, Bangladesh has beenable to achieve gender parity in primary andsecondary education.In this brochure, we have included severalimpact stories, which describe people and placesbenefting rom the partnership between ADBand Bangladesh. Covering projects in the areaso rural livelihood, health, fnance, inrastructure,and water, the brochure narrates the stories o people whose lives have been transormed byinnovative ways o delivering services, such asclean tap water and better transport acilities.It also illustrates the many new developmentpartnerships that are, or example, bringingeective health services to the countless urbanpoor, and improving income or the smallarmers with better access to credit, know-how,and inrastructure.I would like to thank sta at the ADB residentmission in Bangladesh and in the South AsiaDepartment or their continuous eorts incatalyzing these development results. I believethese stories o success will continue to inspiresta in achieving much more in the uture toensure that millions o people are lited out o poverty and are able to see positive changes intheir quality o lie.
