Data and statistical analysis in the Asia and Pacific region contributes to knowledge generation in ADB, helping strengthen its institutional priorities and operational effectiveness in its developing member countries.

Adaptation Climate Finance by Sector

ADB’s developing member countries and its infrastructure-related investment operations, are at risk from the physical impacts of climate change. The world faces a $41 trillion mitigation investment gap to 2030, with emerging markets facing a higher gap as a share of their gross domestic product (GDP). There is also an adaptation financing gap of $600 billion required annually to 2050, which is 10–18 times greater than current flows.

ADB has committed $30.8 billion from own resources during 2019–2023 for climate change mitigation and adaptation. Cumulative financing for adaptation reached over $10 billion between 2019 and 2023, surpassing the midterm (2019–2024) adaptation finance target of $9 billion a year early.
