According to ADB website, the TA aims to support implementation of the Seismic Safety Improvement Program (SSIP), the first results-based lending program (RBL program) in the country. SSIP with an amount of $88.5 million was approved on 22 September 2015. The loan closing date originally was 31 May 2021 and was extended to 31 May 2024 due to start up delays and budget consolidation. The executing agency (EA) is the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development (MTAD) and the implementing agency (IA) is the Armenian Territorial Development Fund (ATDF). The RBL program supports the implementation of the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction by (i) improving school seismic safety to reduce casualties and damages in schools during earthquakes, and (ii) enabling better use of school buildings as shelters for the general public and as focal points for emergency response after earthquakes.

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.
