According to ADB website, ADB's Strategy 2020 identifies good governance and capacity development as one of the five drivers of change, and puts it as mainstream of ADB operations. In the Midterm Review of Strategy 2020, ADB will help strengthen governance systems and institutional capacities to support effective, timely, and corruption-free delivery of public services. ADB's Governance Policy (1995) identified transparency, accountability, participation, and predictability as four pillars of sound governance. Presently, all CPSs address governance and capacity issues, in part through the mandatory requirement for CPSs and operations in priority sectors to be informed by governance risk assessments (GRAs).

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
