1. The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) cluster will help build the capacity of Asian Development Bank (ADB) developing member countries (DMCs) to enhance water security and resilience in Asia and the Pacific. It will (i) support increased climate resilience in water projects, programs, and policies by facilitating a shift toward climate-resilient and low-carbon development; and (ii) help build the capacity of DMC clients to use information and communications technology (ICT), digital and remote sensing technologies, and innovations. The TA cluster is aligned with ADB's Strategy 2030, particularly operational priorities 2 (gender equality and women's empowerment), 3 (tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability), 4 (making cities more livable), and 5 (rural development and food security). The TA is included in the 2021 ADB Management-approved results-based work plan of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department (SDCC) and in the Water Sector Group (WSG) work plan, 2021 2022.
