The overall project with additional financing): (i) will remain technically feasible, economically viable, and financially sound; (ii) is accorded high priority by the government; (iii) is consistent with the project’s development objectives, and (iv) is consistent with the current country partnership strategy (CPS). The overall project will continue to use a sector modality which has proven to be efficient and effective for organizing implementation. It will be carried out in the same four project provinces of Bokeo, Louang-Namtha, Oudomxai, and Phongsali.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
