According to ADB website, Asia is undergoing one of the most profound demographic shifts in the world, wherein by 2050, the number of people over the age of 65 is expected to exceed 1 billion. The Midterm Review of Strategy 2020; Social Protection Operation Plan, 2014-2020; and Operational Plan for Health, 2015-2020 of ADB all recognize the challenges this demographic shift poses for growth in the region and the risk of creating new vulnerable populations if these challenges are not addressed. The TA will be a first step in developing a new ADB business line that cuts across sectors and is at the center of development needs in Asia and the Pacific.

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
