This report provides a rundown of ADB’s work with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) during 2022 to help developing member countries (DMCs) recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and give stronger social protection and economic support to some of the region’s poorest.
Under Operational Priority 1: Addressing Remaining Poverty and Reducing Inequalities, the report highlights promoting social protection for economic inclusion through the Graduation approach. Economic inclusion and social protection strategies through the graduation approach are innovative and empirically proven ways to address poverty and reduce inequality, which is a key operational priority of ADB Strategy 2030.
