According to ADB website, The proposed S-CDTA, responds to a specific request from the Melaka Green Technology Corporation (MGTC) to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to follow-up earlier work under TA 8314-REG: Green Cities A Sustainable Urban Future in Southeast Asia (Green Cities RETA). Under the Green Cities RETA, efforts were initiated to develop green city action plans and build the capacity of participating cities to meet the challenge of balancing economic growth with urban environmental sustainability and climate resilience across several countries in Southeast Asia. In Malaysia, the activity was started on a pilot basis in Melaka (Malacca), a historic trading center on the Strait of Malacca with a population in 2011 of 830,000, as part of TA 8040-REG: Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity Implementation. The Green City Action Plan (GCAP) for Melaka was disseminated at the first regional conference on Enabling GrEEEn Cities at the ADB Headquarters on 13 to 14 May 2014 as part of the Green Cities RETA.

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
