ONGOING. This paper assesses the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) support for clean technologies through Climate Investment Funds (CIF), with special regard to approaches that can be adopted for the transformation, additionality, and leverage for low-carbon development. The paper aims to strengthen the findings of a recent joint evaluation of the CIFs by five multilateral development banks, including ADB.

The evaluation of ADB’s support for CIFs will focus on quality-at-entry related issues of relevance, responsiveness, and likelihood of results.
