The rationale of this project is in line with two policies of ADB, i.e 'Strategy 2030:Achieving a Prosperous, Inclusive, Resilient, and Sustainable Asia and the Pacific' and 'Climate Change Strategic Framework 2017-2030'. As stated in these policies, ADB vows to support its Developing Member Countries (DMC's) in "tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, enhancing environmental sustainability, and strengthening governance and institutional capacity".
This project is in the form of Transactional Technical Assistance (TRTA). According to the bank document, " the proposed TRTA facility will scale-up activities of and build upon outputs from South Asia Department's (SARD) earlier regional climate change initiatives such as the small-scale capacity development TA 8292-REG: Preparing for Climate Action South Asia and the regional knowledge support TA 8572-REG: Action on Climate Change in South Asia."
* The bank states that TRTA is a form of technical assistance that directly benefits a project or is financed by ADB for the purpose of various services such as project preparation, project implementation report or policy advice. TRTA can also help develop a public–private partnership as part of transaction advisory services. (https://www.adb.org/business/how-to/what-adb-technical-assistance-ta)

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
