|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The Climate Change Operational Framework 2017-2030: Enhanced Actions for Low Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Climate-Resilient Development (CCOF2030), approved by the President on 4 July 2017, is intended to provide broad direction and guidance for enhancing resilience and strengthening climate actions in ADB's operations and business processes including country partnership strategies, country operations business plans, sector and thematic strategies, developing member country (DMC) programs and projects, technical assistance, and knowledge support; in accordance with the goal to deliver stronger, better and faster support to its DMCs as "One ADB".
CCOF2030 will be implemented through an action agenda consisting of two operational phases, the first of which, Phase 1 (2017-2023), will support an acceleration in climate change investments and serve as a learning opportunity as ADB scales up climate finance to meet the $6 billion target by 2020. Phase 2, from 2024-2030, will position ADB to further scale up its assistance in line with lessons learned in Phase 1 while being guided by the second generation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and increasingly ambitious DMC climate action.
The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) cluster on Supporting the Implementation of ADB's Climate Change Operational Framework 2017 2030 (CCOF2030) was approved by the President on 7 December 2018. The TA cluster will help boost the capacity of developing member countries (DMCs) for meeting their climate objectives by (i) assisting in refining and translating nationally determined contributions (NDCs) into climate investment plans, which may be implemented with assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB); (ii) improving DMCs' access to external public and private climate finance, including support for innovative financing mechanisms; and (iii) developing methods and approaches to establish baselines and monitoring tools for indicators to measure and gauge DMC progress on climate actions and ADB's contribution to these actions. The TA cluster is strongly aligned with Strategy 2030, which highlights tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience and enhancing environmental sustainability as one of ADB's operational priorities, i.e., operational priority 3.

|Consulting Services||The TA subproject will engage 24 person-months of international inputs (monitoring, review and verification specialist, results framework specialist and sector specialists) in the field of public policy, monitoring and evaluation, energy, transport, climate change, engineering and economics; and 48 person-months of national inputs (econometric modeling specialist, database management specialist, senior analyst and coordinator, and senior country researchers) in the field of climate change/environmental/ policy, economics, and other social science. ADB will engage consultants using individual consultant selection method, as the TA subproject requires a mix of expertise covering various sectors, finding a firm that carries all expertise may be difficult and can cause unnecessary delays; and following the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and its associated project administration instructions and/or staff instructions. Selected reports will be published as knowledge products in English and the local language, as needed, with limited print copies prepared and disseminated to training and/or workshop participants from DMCs.|

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.
