According to ADB website, ADB is helping the Philippines restore basic social services and rebuild communities devastated by Typhoon Yolanda, known internationally as Haiyan. The emergency assistance loan will support the government's KALAHI-CIDSS National Community-Driven Development Project. It will help build the capacity of communities to identify, prioritize, budget, and implement needed projects.
The project will support the implementation of the government's KALAHI CIDSS- National Community-Driven Development Project (KC-NCDDP) to restore basic social services and rebuild communities affected by Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan). The impact will be improved resiliency of poor communities to natural hazards. The outcome will be improved access to services and infrastructure for communities in affected provinces and their participation in more inclusive local disaster risk reduction and management planning, budgeting, and implementation.

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
