Objective and Purpose of the Assignment

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to increasing access to clean and affordable energy for
people throughout the Asia and Pacific region, particularly the poor. This commitment is in line with
ADB's Strategy 2020 and is reaffirmed in ADB's 2009 Energy Policy, which identifies maximizing access to
energy for all as one of the three pillars for ADB's overall support in the energy sector. Since 2005,
the Energy Efficiency Initiative (EEI), now known as Clean Energy Program (CEP), has been providing
technical assistance (TA) to ADB's operations departments in increasing clean energy (CE) investments in
DMCs through capacity-building, planning, policy development, regulatory, and communications support
that intends to create the enabling environment for these investments, and develop a pipeline of clean energy projects.

Under the Clean Energy Program, ADB sponsors the Asia Clean Energy Forum, an annual key knowledge event
held at ADB's Headquarters in Manila. The Forum brings together major stakeholders on clean energy, both
within and outside the Asia Pacific region. The event provides a major knowledge platform for scaling up
clean energy development in Asia and the Pacific. In 2019, ADB successfully managed the 14th Asia Clean
Energy Forum for exchange of experiences on key issues and latest developments in clean energy. As ADB
will be celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the ACEF 2020, ADB plans to use ACEF 2020 to reflect on what
has been achieved during the past 15 years and have directed discussions on how to build upon this to
accelerate the clean energy transition throughout Asia and the Pacific region, and to address global
climate change along with economic and social development. The ACEF 2020 theme can set the scene for
discussions around ADB’s Energy Sector’s future directions and strategy; a continued focus on the 7
operational priorities of ADB’s Strategy 2030.

Scope of Work

The objective of this assignment will be to provide technical support to ADB's Sustainable Development
and Climate Change Department (SDCC) and ACEF Steering Committee in the design and implementation of
ACEF 2020, including identification of and communication with potential speakers, planning of session
design, and reporting on the event.
