Virender Kumar Duggal

Principal Climate Change Specialist,
Asian Development Bank

Mr. Virender Kumar Duggal leads ADB’s work to support its developing member countries (DMC) use carbon pricing instruments as part of their broader climate policy architecture to achieve their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and contribute to meeting the Paris Agreement goals. In this role, he spearheads ADB’s trust funds that mobilize carbon finance to incentivize investments in low carbon technologies through bilateral and international carbon markets. He also oversees ADB’s work on providing technical and capacity building support to enhance DMCs’ ability to develop and take advantage of domestic, bilateral, and international carbon markets, and, where applicable, integrated markets to scale up their efforts in achieving their NDC targets and raising ambition over time.
