According to the Bank’s website, the program constitutes the first dedicated climate change policy-based loan undertaken by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and addresses climate change as its core objective. It will support the Philippines to implement its national climate policies, including its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), which aims to peak greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030, and scale up climate adaptation, mitigation, and disaster resilience. The program will increase and intensify actions to transform key sectors toward a climate-resilient and low-carbon economy. It focuses on sectors that are of national priority for climate action, targeting adaptation in highly vulnerable sectors (agriculture, natural resources, and environment), and mitigation in emissions-intensive sectors (energy and transport). The program reform areas are (i) strengthening planning, financing, and institutional linkages for climate action; (ii) enhancing resilience to climate impacts; and (iii) strengthening low-carbon pathways.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
