Regional : Building Institutional Capacity: Delivering Climate Solutions under Operational Priority 3 of Strategy 2030

Sovereign Project | 54176-001

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to expand action on climate change, thereby helping to implement ADB's Strategy 2030 operational priority 3 (OP3) on tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability. The TA will build institutional capacity through technical support and policy advice to DMCs to (i) develop long-term low-greenhouse gas (GHG) emission and resilient development strategies; (ii) mobilize, track and report on climate finance; (iii) enhance management of climate and disaster risks; and (iv) ensure national strategies and policies are aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degrees C, and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees C.

Description

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to expand action on climate change, thereby helping to implement ADB's Strategy 2030 operational priority 3 (OP3) on tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability. The TA will build institutional capacity through technical support and policy advice to DMCs to (i) develop long-term low-greenhouse gas (GHG) emission and resilient development strategies; (ii) mobilize, track and report on climate finance; (iii) enhance management of climate and disaster risks; and (iv) ensure national strategies and policies are aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degrees C, and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees C.

The TA is aligned with Strategy 2030 and will support the implementation of the OP3 operational plan, specifically the following strategic operational priorities: increasing climate change mitigation actions, and building climate and disaster resilience. The TA will also contribute to other operational priorities, specifically 1 (addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities), 2 (accelerating progress in gender equality), 5 (strengthening governance and institutional capacity), and 7 (fostering regional cooperation and integration). The TA is included in the 2019 and 2020 Management-approved results-based work plan of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
ADB's Strategy 2030 aims to achieve a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific. Operational Priority 3 (OP3) is tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability. ADB has set a target to ensure that at least 75% of the number of its committed operations (on a 3-year rolling average, including sovereign and non-sovereign operations) will support climate change mitigation and adaptation by 2030. Climate finance from ADB's own resources is also targeted to reach $80 billion for the period 2019-2030. To successfully implement OP3 and achieve corporate climate targets, it is imperative that climate change and climate and disaster resilience are mainstreamed in ADB operations. To do this, ADB needs to ensure that DMCs have the capacity to identify and implement policies and strategies that support the country's climate change mitigation and adaptation needs.
