ADB Theme Bonds for Sustainable Development

Publication | October 2021
This edition highlights milestones of ADB's theme bonds for education, gender, health, and water, including recent project commitments and disbursements to support efforts to address the impacts of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

Since launching its first theme bond in 2010, ADB has cultivated a broad selection to support projects in key sectors for its developing member countries. Although these bonds have contributed to significant development successes, many gains are being threatened by COVID-19. This edition shows how projects supported by ADB’s theme bonds are helping address longstanding health, environmental, and gender issues, among others, while specifically addressing the needs of vulnerable populations.
