According to ADB website, the proposed regional research and development technical assistance (TA) will contribute to promoting smart infrastructure and systems in selected cities under the Future Cities Program (FCP) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), with particular emphasis on pro-poor support, facilitating positive steps toward sustainable and livable cities, and knowledge solutions consistent with ADB's Urban Operational Plan, 2012 2020. The TA is aligned with Strategy 2020, which promotes environmentally sustainable development (particularly livable cities), and with ADB's Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, which emphasizes ADB's actions and need to be innovative, inclusive, integrated, and operationally relevant. The TA will identify smart solutions to improve the living standards of city residents, focusing on the urban poor and women, and could lead to the preparation of relevant investment projects where ADB could provide further financing assistance.

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
