Maintaining vital economic growth while creating sustainable livable cities for all is the biggest urban challenge facing the region. Beyond infrastructure, systemic issues in land, housing, and housing finance markets must be addressed.

                  ADB recognizes that civil society and nongovernment organizations are development actors in their own right. Their efforts complement those of governments and the private sector and they play a significant role in development in Asia and the Pacific. ADB's cooperation with these organizations takes place at three policy and strategy, country, and project levels.

                    ADB adopted a policy on the role of women in development in 1986. It updated it in 1998 to look more specifically at gender issues, not just women per se, from the perspective of gender and development. This video traces the early days of ADB's focus on women and gender. The video notes also that Strategy 2020, ADB's current long-term strategic framework, singles out gender equity as a driver of change.

                      Gender equality needs to be pursued in its own right and because it is critical for sustained economic growth, faster poverty reduction, and inclusive development. Under-investments in women are missed opportunities to correct gender disparities and to capture and unleash the economic and human capital potential of women.
