Asia Leadership Program

The Asia Leadership Program on Sustainable Development and Climate Change (Asia Leadership Program) aims to produce a critical mass of “change agents” among the policy makers and practitioners in ADB’s client countries.  

These change agents will incorporate innovative solutions for climate change and sustainable development in their policies and development programs; and catalyze and facilitate expanded sharing of knowledge solutions with and among ADB’s client countries. 

The program targets key policy makers and technical officers who are emerging leaders committed to sustainable development and climate change adaptation and mitigation.  It also targets environment advocates, members of the civil society, the academe and those interested or engaged in sustainable development and climate change work.
