Community Resilience Financing Partnership Facility (CRFPF)

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.

Q&A: Arghya Sinha Roy on the Community Resilience Partnership Program

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.

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