News Release

$120 Million from Green Climate Fund to Support ADB’s Community Resilience Partnership Program in Asia and Pacific

The Green Climate Fund has approved $120 million in climate adaptation financing to support ADB's Community Resilience Partnership Program, which aims to strengthen climate resilience in poor and vulnerable communities.

Why Asia and the Pacific needs the CRFPF

Asia and the Pacific needs to scale up investments in climate adaptation at the community level.

  • The climate and poverty nexus requires explicit attention.
  • Targeted support is needed for women and girls to build resilience to climate change.
  • COVID-19 has highlighted underlying vulnerabilities.
  • A large gap remains in climate finance that responds to local needs.

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.

How will the CRFPF provide support?

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 of climate, gender and poverty. The CRFPF is designed for implementation over a 10-year period, providing a long-term commitment for building resilience.
