The Asian Development Bank (ADB), in partnership with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office of the United Kingdom, and the Green Climate Fund, is organizing a high-level event with partners and governments to discuss critical actions needed to finance a green recovery in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) developing member countries after the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The event will also announce four new cofinancing partners and their support for an ASEAN Green Recovery Platform, through the ADB-managed ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility (ACGF), that will develop and finance green infrastructure projects that align with the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, aspiring to use $665 million of development funds to catalyze $7 billion for green infrastructure across ASEAN.


  • Discuss how programs and activities by major development partners can be leveraged to support ASEAN developing member countries catalyze financing for Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) as part of their COVID-19 recovery efforts
  • Launch the ASEAN Green Recovery Platform with co-financing and Southeast Asian government partners
  • Bring together donor governments, including UK, GCF, EU, France, and Italy to promote the ACGF and the Green Recovery Platform
