Economic and Fiscal Impacts of Disasters in the Pacific
Pacific island countries need to build their fiscal and economic resilience to climate change and natural disasters as these have lasting consequences on their livelihoods, economies, and fiscal balances. Climate change and natural disasters can have lasting consequences on livelihoods, economies, and fiscal balances-spanning immediate reconstruction costs and fiscal shocks to long-term halts in tourism and agriculture economies. Globally, the most exposed to these impacts are the Pacific island countries. The Asian Development Bank is working closely with its Pacific developing member countries to prepare for and respond to the effects of climate change and natural hazards. This publication examines the often-overlooked dimension of resilience planning-how to brace economies for shocks caused by climate change and hazard events. It analyzes the exposure and vulnerability of Pacific economies to disaster events and outlines key resources for building fiscal and economic resilience.

Future Carbon Fund: Delivering Co-Benefits for Sustainable Development
Asia and the Pacific is home to more than 60% of the world's population and 62% of the global economic output. But the region still faces enormous development challenges and with economic growth, it has become a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This has exposed Asia and the Pacific to the impacts of climate change, threatening to undo the development gains from economic prosperity over the past decades. This report reflects how Clean Development Mechanism projects supported by the Future Carbon Fund not only reduce GHG emissions but deliver social, environmental, and economic co-benefits contributing to sustainable development in the region. This report also presents qualitative and quantitative analysis of these co-benefits.

Water Resources Protection and Informed Decision Making: An Example of the Dagu Aquifer in Qingdao, People's Republic of China
Water security has become a key priority for most countries in Asia-and the People's Republic of China is no exception. Many local governments in the People's Republic of China are struggling to ensure a water-secure future for their residents. The Asian Development Bank provided support to the Qingdao Municipal Government for the preparation of a groundwater resources plan for the Dagu aquifer in Shandong Province. The assessments and modeling technologies applied in the Dagu aquifer example are valuable lessons for other local governments to use when making decisions in their own planning. These include the types of information about the water resources, options for the treatment of water pollution, and the needed planning for the management and protection of water resources.

Development Effectiveness Report 2017: Private Sector Operations
Achieving the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change will require significant contributions by the private sector. In 2017, ADB committed funding to 27 new private sector operations (PSOs) for a total funding amount of $2.3 billion, a 27% increase compared to 2016 and the highest amount yet. This amount is complemented by a record $5.9 billion in cofinancing, which represents 50% of all cofinancing mobilized by ADB. ADB's portfolio of PSOs grew by 17% to $10.9 billion. Transactions committed in 2017 will make significant contributions to the economies of member countries. They are expected to generate more than $492 million in government revenues and enable procurement of $2.2 billion of goods and services from local firms. 2017 commitments are expected to provide 17,000 new jobs. ADB's PSOs active in 2017 have contributed to their economies by purchasing goods and services worth more than $2,860 million locally and have contributed $588 million in government revenues. Projects have provided employment for an additional 133,850 people.

Logistics plays an important role in agricultural production and supply-chain management, ultimately enhancing food safety and quality. Improvements in rural logistics help farmers to harvest and market crops more efficiently; and by facilitating communication, they serve to expand the markets for agricultural products. While recognizing the rapidly changing rural landscape in the People's Republic of China, the distribution of goods is still impeded, and the quality of services poor. This study is part of the Asian Development Bank's initiative to support and promote the development of the agriculture sector and establish efficient rural-urban synergies. Read how the private and public sectors can improve and promote logistics development in rural areas.

This publication continues the Asian Development Bank's analysis of lake and wetland rehabilitation in the People's Republic of China. It examines how the current situation in the Chao Lake Basin compares with international thinking on the conditions necessary for sustainable management of lake basins. The analysis highlights that the creation of the Chao Lake Management Authority (CLMA) and the formulation of the master plan do not mean the problem has been solved, only that the basic framework for solving the problem has been created. Building CLMA capacity, focusing more on managing agricultural pollution, introducing incentives to change farmer behavior, and updating the master plan to ensure its relevance are four key actions for the government to undertake in the coming years, if not decades.

Armenia Country Gender Assessment
Armenia, a country of ancient traditions, is shaped by events of the recent past. As it left behind the Soviet legacy of an official gender equality policy, there came about a resurgence of patriarchal views and customs. At the same time though, Armenia saw the growth of diverse women's civil society organizations, and the development of a solid legal and policy framework for the protection of equal rights. This publication discusses gender equality concerns in Armenia's government, economy, society, and culture. It analyzes gender issues in key sectors such as energy, transport, water supply and municipal services, and entrepreneurship. Developed in cooperation with the government and other development partners, this country gender assessment is envisaged to be a useful guide in developing and implementing policies, programs, and projects with a social and gender perspective.

Assessment of Power Sector Reforms in Sri Lanka: Country Report
Sri Lanka's power sector reforms were undertaken as part of a larger overall economic recovery effort and much-needed reconstruction program following a 30-year civil war. The power sector's restructuring, primarily geared toward encouraging more competition and improved regulation, has brought about wider access to the grid, lower transmission and distribution losses, and a more efficient generation system; but it was met with limited success in unbundling the power system and in making electricity tariffs cost-based and more efficient. This country report by the Asian Development Bank assesses Sri Lanka's experience in reforming its power sector for lessons and insights that other economies could find useful when pursuing their own power sector planning and policy and strategy formulation.

This report assesses the extent to which inclusive business models promote women's economic empowerment. Examples come from the inclusive business portfolios of the Asian Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, and International Finance Corporation. The report finds that inclusive businesses are indeed bringing positive change to women's lives and that addressing gender-based constraints also yields business benefits. However, a company's financial return and its social impact can be maximized only if companies understand and address systemic issues of gender inequality.
