According to ADB website, the ADB is helping Fiji improve the safety and durability of its land and maritime transport infrastructure. The project will finance civil works to repair and upgrade existing roads, bridges, and rural jetties. A key focus will be on building climate-resilient infrastructure. It will also help strengthen institutional capacity of central and line agencies.
The proposed project will improve access to socioeconomic opportunities by supporting the government in upgrading and rehabilitating land and maritime transport infrastructure. The project will finance repair, rehabilitation, and upgrading of transport infrastructure prioritized by an updated 20-Year National Transport Infrastructure Plan, based on the GGF, the Roadmap for Democracy and Sustainable Socio-Economic Development, and Public Sector Investment Program. The World Bank has expressed strong interest in cofinancing the project, and is expected to approve its cofinancing in early 2015; following that approval, the project scope will be enlarged to cover additional subprojects.

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
