According to the bank document, "the proposed Arghandab Integrated Water Resources Development Investment Project (the project) will finance improvements to the availability and use of water resources for irrigated agriculture, urban water supply, and power generation for Kandahar, the country’s second largest city, and its vicinity. The project—located in the Arghandab River sub-basin, within the Helmand River system—will also make the management of these water resources more efficient."

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
