According to the bank website, the CAREC Transport and Trade Facilitation Strategy 2020, endorsed at the 12th Ministerial Conference on Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation held in Astana, Kazakhstan on 23-24 October 2013, identified the need for TA on road safety for CAREC member countries. The proposed TA fulfills ADB's commitment to the delivery of TA on road safety intended to reduce the burden associated with road collisions in CAREC member countries.
The proposed TA will seek to attempt to reduce the loss of life and resulting poverty impacts associated with road traffic collisions through developing capacity in CAREC member countries in key areas relating to road safety: road safety management; data collection and analysis; road safety engineering; enforcement of traffic laws; and road safety advocacy and education. The expected TA outputs are: (i) an established a CAREC road safety strategy, (ii) strengthened the capacity of CAREC member countries to manage and coordinate road safety activities including improved data collection and road collision research, improved engineering, education and enforcement capacity, and (iii) integration of road safety evaluation tools into CAREC road projects.

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.
