Climate Change Financing at ADB

ADB has placed combating climate change and its consequences at the top of its development agenda. The bank is therefore scaling up support to address climate change, disaster risks, and environmental degradation, elevating its ambition to provide $100 billion in cumulative climate financing from its own resources to its developing member countries for the period 2019-2030.

Asian Development Outlook (ADO) September 2023: Key Messages

  • This update revises slightly down the region’s growth forecast for this year to 4.7% on slower expansions in South Asia and Southeast Asia. The growth forecast for 2024 is unchanged at 4.8%.
  • Inflation in developing Asia is forecast to decline from 4.4% last year to 3.6% in 2023 and 3.5% in 2024. Much of this year’s decline will be driven by the People's Republic of China (PRC), where the inflation forecast is revised down to 0.7%.
  • Downside risks to the outlook have strengthened. A close watch is needed on the weaknesses in the PRC’s property sector. Across the region, authorities will need to take policy steps to ensure that supply disruptions and the wide-ranging effects of El Niño do not raise food security challenges. Financial stability risks require continued vigilance in vulnerable economies as the era of easy money ends. On a positive note, a faster-than-expected decline in inflation in the United States could boost global prospects.

Economic and Social Statistics: Asia and the Pacific

ADB acknowledges the need for reliable, timely, granular, and integrated data, as well as innovative ways to produce them, to guide economic and social development to ensure that nobody is left behind. To aid in evidence-based policymaking, ADB produces key knowledge resources and partners with statistics agencies in Asia and the Pacific to improve the region's capability to produce effective statistics.

ADB Corporate Data

Data on ADB's operations, projects, project results and performance, internal administration, and financial management; including cofinancing partnerships and climate financing.

Financing Infrastructure

Hefty infrastructure needs of $26 trillion from 2016-2030 means Asia and the Pacific needs to find new ways to attract investment. These could include more private financing, infrastructure bonds, or capturing the value of higher land prices.
