Regional: Policy Options to Support Climate-Induced Migration

Sovereign Project | 43181-012

Summary

Environment and climate change (CC) are among the core areas of operations of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) . ADB's strategic focus seeks to ensure that the poor and disadvantaged benefit from the opportunities and benefits of growth. The strategy also aims to support the vulnerable adversely affected as a consequence of growth. The region experienced rapid growth in the recent past. An adverse consequence of this growth however is the increasing share of the region in greenhouse gas emissions, causing severe strains on the environment and contributing to climate change. Climate change poses a major threat to the Asia Pacific region's sustainable growth and security, with as many as 1 billion people facing the prospect of freshwater shortages, declining crop yields and increasingly serious flooding.
