2016 Climate Change Financing

The Climate Change Financing Database presents the Asian Development Bank's projects that support climate change actions. In 2016, ADB delivered over $4.4 billion in climate finance: $3.7 billion from its internal resources and $701 million from external sources. ADB is committed to scaling up its climate financing to $6 billion by 2020—$4 billion for mitigation and $2 billion for adaptation—by assisting its developing member countries transition to low carbon and climate-resilient economies.
