Project Description
According to ADB website, the TA will build on ADB's previous support for achieving MDG7 (environmental sustainability) in Asia and the Pacific, and will align with Strategy 2030 (under preparation) to support DMCs in implementing actions on the environment-related SDGs. The TA will also work with regional partners such as Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), both of which have mandates to support countries to implement the SDGs. The TA also complements the regional TA on Agenda 2030 and the SDG, as both will help ADB support SDG implementation and develop Strategy 2030, but focuses on implementing environment-related SDGs. The impact will be the integration of environment-related SDGs into policy and planning processes in Asia and the Pacific DMCs improved or achieved in the long term (The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development).
