ADB is committed to supporting low carbon city development efforts consistent with the global climate goals. Cities play crucial role in providing better life. For a long time, our cities are experiencing significant population and economic growth through carbon-intensive industrialization, urban sprawl and migration, and environmental pollution. In her welcome remarks, ADB's M. Teresa Kho notes how the Forum serves as a platform to address challenges and present innovative solutions and tools. She adds that the Forum aims to empower city governments to develop strategic plans and successfully execute climate actions to transform city growth.
