The fund was established in 2020 to catalyze financing for nonsovereign climate adaptation and mitigation projects in eligible countries in the Pacific and Southeast Asia. To support projects that contribute to: (i) reduced greenhouse gas emission, (ii) becoming more resilient to the impacts of climate change, (iii) enabling environment for climate finance and ease of doing business in participating countries, and (iv) target countries becoming more supportive of gender equality and women’s empowerment in fund-targeted sectors.
Project implementation, supervision, and monitoring will be conducted by user departments following ADB’s standard policies, procedures, and guidelines.
ADB conducts preliminary due diligence of nonsovereign entity, then sends concept information package to partner (DFAT Australia) to obtain No Objection.
