Action Pledge


In its long-term strategic framework 2008-2020, the ADB has refocused its operations into five core specializations, in support of needs expressed by developing country members, to include support on environment and climate change adaptation.  The objective of the programme is to encourage greater investments in ADB developing member country partners to address the causes and consequences of climate change, alongside ADB's own assistance in various related sectors.
