Project Description

The projects will be conducted in countries as Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines and Viet Nam which relate to risks of the most vulnerable populations to the current and future climate change. Those countries are eligible for Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) and in consultation with the Operations Departments (OD).

Participants of the ADB Resilience Academy also were invited in consultation with the OD and came from cities that are already receiving support from UCCRTF for other urban planning and infrastructure investment activities. The multidisciplinary and iterative project design process employed at the ADB Resilience Academy reaffirmed the need for the three outputs of inclusive resilience planning, community-identified small-scale projects and driving towards an integration of community-level planning with city-wide planning.

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
