This regional capacity development technical assistance (TA) will help strengthen integrated water resources management (IWRM) in Afghanistan, Bhutan, and Nepal. The TA will contribute to the management of environment and climate change impacts, one of the strategic priorities in the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). It will do this by assisting target river basins in strengthening water resources management to cope with (i) expected changes in water availability due to climate change, and (ii) increase in water demand due to economic and population growth. ADB''s Water Operational Plan, 2011- 2020 prioritizes embedding the IWRM process in river basins.
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
