Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Impact Participating governments increase nationally appropriate responses to climate change and disasters with support from civil society and the private sector.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Participating governments have improved capacity to integrate climate change and disaster responses with social and economic development goals.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. ADB provides participating country governments with Improved macrolevel scientific and economic data at national and sub-national level to assist decision-making in the form of community, social and physical science-based impact maps, GIS-data, climate modeling and economic analysis on comparative costs of climate rsponses.

2. Participating governments can identify 'no regret' strategies for climate change and disaster risk reduction response and build the capacity of resource managers.

3. Methodology developed to ensure synergies between top-down (government) and bottom-up (civil society organization) mitigation & adaptation approaches.

4. Participating countries make increased use of civil society to implement community-based mitigation & adaptation initiatives and assess social impacts of climate change using a 'bottom-up approach'.

5. Greater participation of private sector financing in climate change mitigation & adaptation activities.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)
Geographical Location The TA will be an interdepartmental cluster TA with subprojects at the inter-regional, sub-regional, and country levels to be implemented by various departments in ADB.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time). A bio data-based selection method will be adopted. Given that this is a cluster TA, other methods of consultant selection may be proposed. In such cases, a memo for a change in implementation arrangements will be accomplished. A total of 80 international consultant person-months and 168 national consultant person-months are required for the three initial subprojects described in para. 10 of the TA paper.
