Climate justice and renewable energy advocates, with consumer rights and multisectoral groups today marched in front of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Headquarters during the Asian Clean Energy Forum to protest the Bank’s continued support for coal and other fossil fuel projects in Asia
despite its professed support for “clean energy.”

“The historical role of international finance institutions, particularly the ADB, in fueling climate change by funding dirty energy projects cannot be denied, and cannot be allowed to continue in our country and region,”said Ian Rivera, National Coordinator of the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice.
