Training on Climate Finance Tracking

1
27 June 2017 to 28 June 2017

Extreme weather conditions brought about by climate change have been threatening the development and security of the Asia Pacific region. The poor are bearing the brunt of climate change given their vulnerability. ADB has a crucial role to play in leading the way towards a greener path. In line with this, ADB has committed to double its annual climate financing to $6 billion by 2020.

To ensure that ADB project officers and focals are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge, an in-house training on tracking climate finance was conducted.
