Building Gender into Climate Finance: ADB Experience with the Climate Investment Funds

This publication confirms the shared commitment of ADB and the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) to mainstreaming gender equality in climate change and showcases how this priority is being integrated into the design of ADB’s CIF projects.

Helping women become more resilient to the impact of climate change, acknowledging their key role and encouraging them to participate in responding to the challenges of climate change, and ensuring that they benefit from climate change financing investments are priorities for ADB as part of its commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of women. This aligns with the CIF's imperative to mainstream gender into climate action for reasons of efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimately for the goals of equity and inclusion towards climate-resilient, low-carbon development in developing countries.
