According to ADB website, the types of gender gaps, and the most relevant entry points for gender mainstreaming in each ADB investment are unique in each DMC. This is reflected in the wide range of (2013) Gender Inequality Index scores in the region (a score of 0 indicates gender parity) ranging from 0.323 in Kazakhstan to 0.705 in Afghanistan. As such, resources are required for ADB's analysis, women's participation, formulation of country and sector-specific approaches and capacity assistance to government implementation in the thematic area of gender to ensure inclusive growth.
Further, the impact will be the attainment of gender-inclusive growth in participating DMCs. The outcome will be improved capacity of participating DMCs in gender mainstreaming. The TA’s outcome target is that at least 50% of ADB-financed projects with gender mainstreaming in the CWA region deliver their intended gender equality results by the end of 2018. The TA focuses on gender mainstreaming.

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
