A panel of experts dialogued on raising climate action ambition in the region by highlighting how a green, resilient, and inclusive recovery can stimulate economic activity, while laying the foundation for a transformative shift toward resilient net-zero emissions societies. They also shared experiences from countries that have recently embraced ambitious long-term national climate plans, and underlined the critical role of finance in the global climate agenda.

The event was held as part of the 54th Annual Meeting of the ADB Board of Governors.
