The government of Timor-Leste has requested ADB to continue to support its preparations for regional economic integration, with a focus on achieving full membership in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). A new capacity development Technical Assistance (TA) project was included in the nonlending pipeline of the country operations business plan, 2015–2017 The TA will enable a smooth continuation of ADB support following completion of the current project.
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.
