ADB Releases Report on Understanding and Responding to Climate Change in Developing Asia

© ADB June 2009: The Asian Development Bank (ADB) published a report on “Understanding and Responding to Climate Change in Developing Asia.”

The report summarizes the recommendations of regional plans and outlines ongoing and planned interventions to help build low-carbon, climate resilient economies in Asia and the Pacific.

To better align its investments and associated policy and institutional support with the priorities of its developing member countries relating to climate and development, each of ADB's five regional departments – covering Central and West Asia, East Asia, the Pacific, South Asia, and Southeast Asia – has drafted a Climate Change Implementation Plan to serve as a guide for climate-related responses, both to mitigate greenhouse emissions and to adapt to climate change impacts.
