ADB is reviewing different policy architecture models as a basis for the preparation of the new policy. Participants are encouraged to read the draft Policy Architecture report which will inform the consultations. This consultation draft summarizes the findings of the study which: (i) reviews ADB’s current safeguard architecture; and (ii) undertakes a broad comparison of policy architecture models of peer multilateral financial institutions (MFIs). Comments received from the consultations will be considered in the final report, and will inform the revision of ADB’s Safeguard Policy architecture.
