March 18, 2024, Makati City, Philippines – In a collaborative effort to bolster climate resilience within the energy sector, the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP), RTI International, and USAID Philippines have initiated a groundbreaking project aimed at enhancing climate resilience financing for power utilities.

The primary objective of this project is to support power utilities in strengthening their resilience against climate-related challenges. This includes facilitating improved access to financing for various climate resilience projects and initiatives within the power sector.

One of the key focuses of this initiative is the development of climate resilience financing programs tailored specifically for power utilities. These programs will be crafted in close collaboration with financing institutions to ensure their effectiveness and sustainability.

The impact of this development is expected to be far-reaching. By enhancing climate resilience in the power utility sector, the project aims to mitigate the potential risks and disruptions posed by climate change-related events. This, in turn, will contribute to the overall stability and reliability of the energy infrastructure, ensuring uninterrupted supply and service for consumers.

The project’s development impact extends beyond infrastructure resilience. It also encompasses capacity building, knowledge sharing, and the promotion of sustainable practices within the energy sector. Through these efforts, the project aims to build a more resilient and sustainable energy landscape that can withstand the challenges of a changing climate.

The launch of this climate resilience financing project marks a significant step forward in the Philippines’ efforts to build a more resilient and sustainable energy sector. With collaboration and innovation at its core, the project sets a precedent for future initiatives aimed at addressing the complex challenges posed by climate change.
