The CRFPF is an initiative to support countries in Asia and the Pacific region to scale up community-level investments in climate adaptation, explicitly seeking to build the resilience of poor and vulnerable communities to the negative impacts of climate change.
This publication explores how climate change adaptation can be integrated into decentralized governance processes to address root causes of vulnerability in Asia and the Pacific.
This technical note explains why ADB established the Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) to scale up adaptation and reduce the growing impacts of climate change on vulnerable populations throughout the Asia and Pacific region.
This document serves as the implementation guidelines of the Community Resilience Partnership Program Trust Fund (CRPPTF).
In this Q&A, ADB Principal Climate Change Specialist Arghya Sinha Roy outlines the key priorities of the CRPP and how it can play a critical role in scaling up climate actions at the local level in Asia and the Pacific region.
Asia and the Pacific needs to scale up investments in climate adaptation at the community level.
Addressing these challenges will require scaling up adaptation investments that are locally led, yet delivered at scale, and build resilience by addressing underlying drivers of vulnerability.
Established in August 2021, the CRFPF provides technical assistance and grant support to ADB's developing member countries in scaling up climate adaptation investments that explicitly address the nexus between climate, gender and poverty. The CRFPF is designed for implementation over a 10-year period, providing a long-term commitment for building resilience.
