Regional: Supporting Adaptation Decision Making for Climate Resilient Investments

Sovereign Project | 50121-001

The TA aims to improve the understanding by DMCs on how to make effective use of climate information and services to facilitate planning and decision-making under climate uncertainty. Through this TA, the DMCs will have enhanced technical capacity to generate, interpret and apply climate information in decision-making in sectors including agriculture, water and energy. It will also incorporate disaster risk management and reduction as a key component of building overall resilience of our DMCs.

Description The TA aims to improve the understanding by DMCs on how to make effective use of climate information and services to facilitate planning and decision-making under climate uncertainty. Through this TA, the DMCs will have enhanced technical capacity to generate, interpret and apply climate information in decision-making in sectors including agriculture, water and energy. It will also incorporate disaster risk management and reduction as a key component of building overall resilience of our DMCs.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Climate change remains a serious threat to development and poverty reduction efforts as reflected in most country planning documents and country partnership strategies (CPS). DMCs emphasized the need for stronger integration of climate change risk management into the development process and in implementation of programs, projects and technical assistance. The TA seeks to enhance climate resilience in the region by improving DMCs' capacity to address climate change issues confronting development objectives. This will be achieved by equipping DMCs to make better and more effective use of climate information and services to inform country programming, sector planning process, and project development.
Impact

Adaptation and climate resilience in development planning, as well as in project design and implementation mainstreamed

Regional public goods, including effective regional responses to climate change supported

Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Decision making for climate resilient investments in selected Developing Member Countries (DMC) enhanced
Progress Toward Outcome Country Climate Risk Profiles for Afghanistan, Viet Nam and Sri Lanka have been published which can be a reference for decision making on climate resilient investments. DMC officials in SERD and PARD DMCs have also been included in the CRM training where the adaptation guidance on the energy sector was featured.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

Country-specific climate projections to support planning developed

Technical support for ADB operations to integrate climate resilience features provided

Good practice guidance on climate resilient infrastructure design and associated training modules developed and delivered

Capacity for using climate and disaster risk information in selected DMCs enhanced

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Output 1: Country-specific climate projections to support planning developed. These country profiles are being produced in collaboration with the World Bank Group's International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Profiles for 40 DMCs and a regional summary for the Pacific have been drafted. The profiles for Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam have been published. The technical note describing data sources, analytical methodology, potential uses, and caveats associated with the climate projections is to be drafted.

Output 2: Technical support for Asian Development Bank operations to integrate climate resilience features provided. A panel of 10 climate change adaptation was recruited through a framework agreement contracting approach to, upon request, provide support to operations team CRA assessments. The experts have now provided support to six projects from the East Asia Department, one project from the Pacific Department, two projects from the South Asia Department and one project from Southeast Asia Department (SERD). Support is ongoing for seven projects across three regional departments.

Output 3: Good practice guidance on climate-resilient infrastructure design and associated training modules developed and delivered. Drafts of the good practice guidance documents for the ANR, Energy, Transport, Urban and Water sectors have been prepared. These documents and the information they contain are being integrated into an Excel-based Adaptation Good Practice Guidance Tool that can be accessed easily by project staff and DMC counterparts. The development of the tool is based also on feedback from ADB staff and DMCs gathered during two consultation meetings held on 8-10 May 2019 and on 1-2 October 2019 focusing on how the sector-specific guidance documents can be of best use to all parties. Various knowledge products to supplement the guidance tool have being developed, two of which have been completed: (i) Climate Change Adjustments for Detailed Engineering Design of Roads: Experience from Viet Nam, and (ii) Manual on Climate Change Adjustments for Detailed Engineering.

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
