The Asian Development Bank and Non-Governmental Organizations: Working Together
Author(s)
Summary
The development experience of recent decades has shown that people, not
systems, are the key to development. Development programs and projects
are more successful when planning closely involves people who will benefit
or be affected adversely. People are demanding a larger role in the planning
and implementation of development efforts that will reshape their lives.

With the awareness that people are the most important consideration in
development, development planning gradually is moving away from
traditional investment projects that rely on economic growth trickling down
to the disadvantaged, and toward projects that benefit the poor and other
intended beneficiaries more directly.

Corporate Governance of Family Businesses in Asia
Author(s)
Haider A. Khan 
Summary
Corporate governance in Asia can best be studied by conceptualizing a paradigmatic form called the family-based
system (FBS). At a low level of development when institutional foundations are weak and underdeveloped, FBS,
characterized by a high degree of family-group control, economizes on transactions costs; but further growth
leads to problems unless relevant laws are well-defined and enforced and markets are competitive. Improving the
ability of the banks to monitor the firms they finance and good governance of financial firms are essential aspects
of corporate governance reform in Asia.

Asian Cities in the 21st Century: Leadership and Change in City Management
Author(s)
Naved Hamid and John Martin 
Summary

Municipal Managers in developing Asia are faced
with the formidable challenge of finding ways of
dealing with rapid urbanization, growing demand
for better public services, and declining financial
support from central governments.
Since economic activity and wealth are largely
generated in the cities, the resources needed for
meeting these challenges are available, but
tapping the resources requires a significant
improvement in the management of the cities.

Some Asian cities are successfully meeting
these challenges, and local leaders learn best
from each other. Therefore, the ADB Institute and
the Bank organized a number of workshops for
local government officials to share their
experiences and learn from the success stories.
The three volumes in this series are a product of
these meetings.
