According to the bank website, "The facility will finance a grant for this additional financing for the Vanuatu Energy Access Project. The project, approved on 26 September 2017, became effective on 18 December 2017, and was the first project approved under the facility. The project will assist Vanuatu to install hydropower generation to replace diesel power generation in Malekula and extend the distribution network grid in both Espiritu Santo and Malekula, the second and third largest population centers in Vanuatu. The additional financing is needed to fund a specification upgrade to improve the resilience and durability of the project investment."

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.
