In 2015, ADB pledged to double its annual climate financing to US$6 billion by 2020, with US$4 billion for climate mitigation and $2 billion for climate adaptation.

Through its Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management Thematic Group and Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management Division, ADB organized a Training on Counting Climate Finance to help enhance the capacity of staff to integrate climate change into the Bank’s operations.

The training was also supported by ADB’s other sector and thematic groups including energy, transport, urban, water, and agriculture.
