Project Description

According to ADB website, the TA will support the Welfare Improvement Strategy for 2012- 2015 and the government's commitment to enforce international labor standards by working on key aspects of the agriculture strategy: (i) promoting crop diversification through demonstration of an integrated cotton -wheat -high-value crops (HVCs) farming system; (ii) assisting mechanization by exploring financing options (including leasing arrangements) for agricultural machinery and other production tools; and (iii) finding more opportunities for private agribusiness investment.

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
