The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is an international organisation whose main goal is to reduce poverty in Asia and the Pacific through environmentally sustainable growth. This goal is pursued through the provision of various forms of financial assistance to developing countries through loans, technical assistance, grants, guarantees and equity investments. ADB works in many areas to address climate change, however its main focus and expertise are in the following subject matter: clean energy, sustainable transport and urban development, land use and forests for carbon sequestration, climate resilient development, as well as strengthening related policies, governance and institutions. ADB intends to deploy financial resources from the GCF in public and private sector projects focused on mitigation (e.g. energy generation and access, energy efficiency, transport, buildings, cities, industries and appliances, land use/forestry, and institutional and regulatory systems); adaptation (e.g. enhancing livelihoods, health and well-being and food and water security, infrastructure and built environment, ecosystems and ecosystem services, climate information/ early warning systems, and awareness strengthening and climate risk reduction), and cross-cutting issues.
