Project Description

According to the bank website, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the establishment of a Platform for Climate Resilient and Low Carbon Urban Development (the Platform) through research and development at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) headquarters and in selected partner cities in ADB's developing member countries (DMCs). The Platform aims to establish a collaborative process among key stakeholders at ADB and the DMCs that is meant to last for five years. The process will result in the production of a knowledge base on climate-informed urban development and it will be designed also to provide operational support to teams in regional departments.

The TA will support the implementation of the urban development-related priorities of ADB's Climate Change Operational Framework 2017 2030 (CCOF2030) by assisting selected DMCs of the ADB in the development of nationally determined contributions (NDCs) through strengthening of knowledge and investments on climate-resilient and low-carbon urban development. The TA will facilitate city-level investments in integrated actions that optimize both climate-resilient and low- carbon emissions outcomes.
