Building Resiliency in the Pacific: How ADB is Addressing Climate Change and Disaster Risks

Published by: ADB

The Pacific operations of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) cover 14 developing member countries (DMCs). These countries have established national policies and institutions to address climate change, and all have issued Intended Nationally Determined Contributions that detail how they will implement the Paris Agreement. The Pacific DMCs also jointly developed the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP), a regional mechanism for cooperation on climate change and disaster risk management. The FRDP recognizes that resilience is central to development and emphasizes that responses must involve all sectors and stakeholders. While the Pacific DMCs are leading the way in responding to climate change, sustainable solutions will require innovative approaches, stronger institutional capacities, and access to concessional financing.
