Climate change is a threat to the whole planet, but developing Asia has some of the most dramatic and damaging early manifestations of climate change. The low-carbon energy transition will also mitigate other problems such as air pollution and traffic congestion, and benefit the preservation of natural assets, agricultural production, and food security. This transition has important implications for gender equality and social inclusion (GESI).

Nossal are providing technical advice and strategic support to Asian Development Bank’s South Asia Department (SARD) Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Team. We will be supporting SARD in developing a capacity development and training program to support greater integration of GESI considerations in SARD infrastructure sector portfolio. There will be a specific focus on infrastructure sector agencies, and utilities involved in energy, disaster emergency response, urban development and health related aspects of SARD portfolio.

We will propose a program for capacity development within a framework for resilient and quality infrastructure investment with an integrated approach and a focus on GESI
