Asian Development Bank

Categorized Under: Climate, International Development

 

 

ICF International is providing technical support to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for its efforts to help 10 Asian countries become more resilient to climate change and climate-related hazards such as floods and droughts. ICF is:

  • Determining which areas and critical sectors (e.g., transport, energy, water supply and sanitation, agriculture) in each country are most vulnerable to climate change and climate-related natural hazards
  • Developing subregional, national, subnational, and sectoral maps of these areas
  • Identifying ADB projects at risk of adverse impacts
  • Developing investment plans for each country that include adaptation and disaster risk management strategies to reduce the vulnerability and exposure of people, infrastructure, and ecosystems at risk

Countries covered include Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. ICF is leading the project’s international and multidisciplinary team of experts, including ICF experts in disaster risk management, climate change impacts and adaptation, geographic information systems (GIS) modeling and mapping, and renewable energy.
