Regional: Sustaining Climate and Disaster Risk Resilient and Low Carbon Development in South Asia

Sovereign Project | 46470-003

The TRTA facility was originally approved as a small-scale TA on 24 December 2018 for $225,000, financed on a grant basis by ADB. In line with ADB's Strategy 2030, Climate Change Operational Framework 2017-2030, and Operational Plan for Strategy 2030's OP3, the TRTA facility supports South Asia developing member countries (DMCs) in tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, enhancing environmental sustainability, and strengthening governance and institutional capacity. The outcome will be well-designed SARD pipeline projects incorporating climate adaptation and mitigation measures to address risks posed by changing climate, extreme weather events, and natural hazards.

Description The TRTA facility was originally approved as a small-scale TA on 24 December 2018 for $225,000, financed on a grant basis by ADB. In line with ADB's Strategy 2030, Climate Change Operational Framework 2017-2030, and Operational Plan for Strategy 2030's OP3, the TRTA facility supports South Asia developing member countries (DMCs) in tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, enhancing environmental sustainability, and strengthening governance and institutional capacity. The outcome will be well-designed SARD pipeline projects incorporating climate adaptation and mitigation measures to address risks posed by changing climate, extreme weather events, and natural hazards. To achieve this, the TRTA facility has four outputs: (i) refinement, finalization and maintenance of SARD's remote sensing-geographical information system (RS-GIS) based climate and disaster risk resilience decision support system, (ii) climate and disaster risk screening of, and climate finance estimation for, SARD pipeline projects, that are being processed within the TRTA's implementation period, (iii) preparation and publication of knowledge products, and (iv) preparation of climate and disaster risk assessment of South Asia DMCs' country partnership strategies that are being drafted within the TRTA's implementation period.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy In line with its Strategy 2030: Achieving a Prosperous, Inclusive, Resilient, and Sustainable Asia and the Pacific and Climate Change Strategic Framework 2017-2030, ADB will continue to actively support its DMCs in tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, enhancing environmental sustainability, and strengthening governance and institutional capacity.
