The ongoing project will address the factors causing the high incidence of waterborne diseases in South Tarawa by delivering and managing new and rehabilitated climate-resilient water supply assets and improved hygiene practices. The additional financing will address the project cost overrun caused by cost escalation since the onset of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in March 2020. The project scope will not be expanded. However, output 4 (project implementation is managed efficiently and effectively) of the original project will be removed from the ongoing project to align the project design with ADB's current Design and Monitoring Framework Guidelines, and its activities and costs will be redistributed among the continuing outputs.

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.
