The Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) is a partnership program to help countries and communities in Asia and the Pacific region scale up investments in climate adaptation, especially investments at the community level, that explicitly target the nexus between climate change, poverty, and gender. The CRPP has a dedicated gender window with funds earmarked specifically for supporting women-focused investments.

The first CRPP Partnership Forum will focus on social protection and agriculture as key sectors for poverty reduction, with dedicated discussions that will help inform practical ways to design and deliver such programs so that they respond to current and future climate risk, address the underlying causes of vulnerability, and empower communities.

The CRPP is operationalized through the Community Resilience Financing Partnership Facility (CRFPF) and includes a multidonor trust fund administered by ADB and supported by the Government of the United Kingdom, the Nordic Development Fund, and the French Development Agency. Read more about the CRRP Trust Fund.


The forum will bring together community leaders, government officials, leading academics, think tanks, financing institutions and global climate funds to discuss what role poverty reduction programs play in building climate resilience.
