According to ADB website, the project will provide institutional strengthening of the Tuul River Basin Authority (TRBA) and demonstrate rehabilitation of the Tuul River in the Ulaanbaatar area. The Tuul River Basin (TRB), which includes 7 districts of Ulaanbaatar, 37 soums (districts) of 5 aimags (provinces) and covers a total area of about 50,000 km2, has the highest water usage in the country. The population density and the concentration of production and services in Ulaanbaatar have been increasing sharply in the last two decades. Increasing water use and wastewater discharge in the TRB put pressure on environmental and water resources, especially in the Ulaanbaatar area.
The project has been cancelled.

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
