Inclusive Cities: The Asian Development Bank's Strategy
"Strategy 2020, the long-term strategic framework of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for 2008–2020, commits ADB to a focus on inclusive development and livable cities, besides its commitment to the Millennium Development Goals, and environmental improvements. Concerns for inclusive urban development are also voiced in ADB’s more recent flagship study Asia 2050: Realizing the Asian Century, which calls for a more visionary leadership in dealing with urbanization and the risks of inequality. This publication represents the work of ADB’s urban community of practice focused on making cities more “inclusive”— that is, ensuring the poor and vulnerable have access to the services they need to better their quality of life."
