According to ADB website, the purpose of the Project described below (the Project) is to implement the Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) prepared by Tonga under phase II of the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) . The Project will mainstream climate resilience into development planning and address country priorities focusing on the most vulnerable sectors and communities. The Project will (i) build capacity in climate change adaptation and disaster risk management at community, sector and national levels; (ii) provide information, tools, and legislative frameworks needed to introduce climate change considerations into government and sector planning and budgeting processes; and (iii) provide access to resources (technical, human, financial) to address the climate change risk priorities of the Government, as well as those of vulnerable communities through a combination of soft and hard measures. This will lead to a progressive increase in the resilience of ecosystems and infrastructure; the foundations of the country's sustainable development aspirations. The Project will be financed on a grant basis from the Strategic Climate Fund which is one of two funds within the design of the Climate Investment Fund.

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
