“The future will be powered by the sun, the wind, and the people”

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) can play a vital role in promoting an equitable shift to cleaner, greener energy for the region. This can be achieved by actively supporting projects and initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance climate resilience for communities.

Let’s urge the ADB to prioritize funding for clean, renewable energy sources, moving away from fossil fuels and accelerating the transition to a sustainable energy landscape in Asia.

Renewable energy is essential and within our reach

The ADB prides itself as a regional beacon to end poverty and improve living standards in the Asia-Pacific region. It champions projects that bolster sustainable development, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase climate resilience.

Public financial institutions like the ADB play a crucial role in driving resources for developing nations to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The ADB should focus on funding renewable energy projects and and providing technical assistance to help countries overcome challenges in transitioning to a low-carbon economy. Yet, it sometimes includes ineffective, false solutions to its projects.

Let’s urge the ADB to drive the shift towards a just energy transition in Asia.
