According to ADB website, the project is designed to provide improved water supply, which will be charged to permit cost recovery and sustainability, sanitary latrines, community drainage, solid waste management and footpaths.
Based on bank documents, the Grant Development Objective is to reduce poverty and vulnerability in selected underserved areas of Yangon and Mandalay, by reducing vulnerability to sanitation and environment related diseases; making access to basic services easier by reducing the need to borrow money for investments in homes, including water and sanitation facilities; and improving the opportunity for the targeted population to participate in local and national economic development. The project outcomes include improved essential community level infrastructure and access to basic services, community mobilization, and a community operation and maintenance (O&M) fund. To ensure sustainable improvement, the project will include capacity building of local government institutions responsible for planning and management of community level infrastructure.

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
