Independent Evaluation at ADB in partnership with the National University of Singapore (Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Asian Competitiveness Institute) will host a high-level learning event conference entitled Cities and Middle Income Countries at the Pan Pacific Hotel on July 12, 2016 in Singapore. Its main focus will be challenges and opportunities posed by rapid urbanization in middle-income countries in Asia and the Pacific. The event will lay out a frank assessment of the problems and top priorities associated with urbanization, and will also present cutting edge solutions and promising experiences.
The event will be anchored in a range of topical studies that Independent Evaluation, LKY and the wider evaluation community have produced recently. The proceedings of the event will be used by LKY and ADB to inform future work and studies. The findings are expected to feed into the policy agenda considered by LKY and others in the region, policy makers and the operational agenda of ADB and other financiers.
