The Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) is a partnership program to help countries and communities in Asia and the Pacific region scale up investments in climate adaptation, especially investments at the community level, that explicitly target the nexus between climate change, poverty, and gender. The CRPP has a dedicated gender window with funds earmarked specifically for supporting women-focused investments.

The CRPP Partnership Forum 2024 will focus on decentralization programs and skills development as key themes for addressing climate risk, reducing poverty, and promoting gender equality. With dedicated discussions, the forum will help inform practical ways to design and deliver such programs so that they respond to current and future climate risk, address the underlying causes of vulnerability, and empower communities, especially women. Discussion on these themes will also be linked to discussions that took place during CRPP Partnership Forum 2023 on adaptive social protection and climate-resilient rural livelihoods.

The CRPP is operationalized through the Community Resilience Financing Partnership Facility (CRFPF) and includes a multidonor trust fund administered by ADB and supported by the Green Climate Fund, the Government of the United Kingdom, the Nordic Development Fund, and the French Development Agency. Read more about the CRRP Trust Fund.

The annual CRPP Partnership Forum brings together community leaders, government officials, think tanks, financing institutions, and global climate funds to discuss what role can poverty reduction programs play in building climate resilience.

Target participants include community leaders, government officials, leading academics, think tanks, financing institutions, and global climate funds.

The CRPP Secretariat is inviting interested practitioners, especially women practitioners from South Asia and Southeast Asian countries to submit a one-page presentation that proposes an innovative pro-poor adaptation solution. Deadline for submission is on 5 January 2024.
