According to ADB website, SIGAP is designed to adopt a bottom-up approach by promoting an evidenced-based policy dialogue approach through piloting the implementation of certain policy actions at local levels. It also adopts a new approach to dialogue between national and local governments and the business community to address policy incoherence between different tiers of government. The interplay of an evidence-based approach and effective public-private dialogue aims to achieve better buy-in from all stakeholders, improve coordination and ease implementation difficulties, where the largest set back has been experienced in the past.

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
