According to ADB website, the Ministry of Civil Affairs (MOCA) has submitted a project proposal to ADB through the Ministry of Finance to provide technical assistance (TA) to better understand international and national trends in professionalizing social work, especially to provide services to the elderly and provide tools to MOCA to standardize, monitor, and evaluate social work services for the elderly with special difficulties. This will contribute to improving the education and practical experience of social workers and social organizations caring for the elderly with special needs, and provide more effective and relevant social support and delivery modes. The TA findings will potentially be replicable nationwide.
According to ADB documents, the safeguard categorization is not applicable.

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
