The ADB on Tuesday announced a $14 billion financial support towards the Asia Pacific region's food security, which is threatened by Russia-Ukraine war and global climatic conditions.
The funding is for the period 2022-2025.
The funding was announced by Asian Development Bank (ADB) President Masatsugu Asakawa as part of the 55th ADB annual meeting, during a virtual press conference.
While $3.3 billion will be spent in 2022, $10.7 billion is to be utilised between 2023-25.
Mr. Asakawa underlined global climate changes and food security as two key focus areas.
The Manila-headquartered agency is proactive to support the member nations. ADB is owned by 68 members, of which 49 are from the Asia Pacific region.
