The Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Based in Manila, Philippines, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region.
ADB serves as the secretariat of the Energy for All Partnership, and leads the fight to maximize access to energy for the poor in Asia and the Pacific region, especially for those communities unserved by national energy infrastructure. Since 2009, ADB’s investments in energy access have led to new connections to modern electricity or fuels for 100 million people.
