The TA is assisting ADB DMCs to enhance their capacity to identify priority investment projects that mitigate climate change and/or support climate change adaptation while creating sustainable development co-benefits.

  • Interact with the GCF Secretariat, GCF Board Members, and members of the Independent Technical Advisory Panel, as needed and directed by the supervising ADB staff;
  • Evaluate the feasibility of re-locating the water intake in Mawlamyine to prevent salinity intrusion due to sea level rise;
