According to the bank document, the project aims "to improve the road condition, safety, and climate resilience of the south section of the National Road 13.
The proposed project is part of a larger government program of rehabilitation and maintenance of the 275 km long National Road 13 south (NR13S), comprising a two-lane section, from km 71 Vientiane Capital to km 346 Khammouane Province delivered through a 10-year Output and Performance-Based Road Contract (OPBRC) under Design, Build, Maintain, Operate and Transfer (DBMOT) methodology.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AIIB
The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM). The PPM provides “an opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIB’s failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.” Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint. You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/how-we-assist-you/index.html.
