Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to ADB website, the project will help transform secondary towns in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) eastern economic corridor into economically inclusive, competitive tourism destinations by improving transport infrastructure, urban sanitation, and capacity to sustainably manage tourism growth. It will boost trade in services by promoting cross-border tourism and deepen GMS and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) regional cooperation and integration. About 168,000 residents are expected to benefit from climate-resilient infrastructure development, improved urban greenspace, cleaner beaches, and better access to economic opportunities.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

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.
