This project finances the construction of riverbank revetments, which protect vulnerable riverbanks and therefore assets and flood embankments behind the riverbanks from progressive erosions. Flood embankments will also be rehabilitated or constructed. This program also includes training for communities to operate and maintain the structures and to manage flood and erosion risks at the community level. Additionally, it will provide livelihood improvement supports. The investment program will include the construction of about 50 kilometers (km) of riverbank protection structures; rehabilitation and construction of 89 km of flood embankments with climate-resilient design; and a trial program of riverbank protection structures.

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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
