Project Description

The ADB is helping Papua New Guinea improve its capacity to assess and incorporate climate change risks in its development investment program. The project is supporting climate risk and resilience planning and vulnerability assessments for at-risk islands and atolls, as well as sustainable fishing activities and food security investments.

The proposed Building Resilience to Climate Change in Papua New Guinea (formerly Strategic Program for Climate Resilience Implementation Project for Papua New Guinea (PNG) (the Project)) aims to make PNG's development investments climate resilient and support the country's transition to _climate compatible development,' as outlined in its national medium- and long-term development strategies. The project impact is increased resilience to the impacts of climate variability and climate change.
