According to ADB website, ADB's previous TA, Promoting Evidence-Based Policy Making for Gender Equity in the Pacific, supported strengthening the technical capacity of selected Pacific countries, by providing training on the use of gender statistics, producing a regional booklet on key gender indicators, and gender assessments in several Pacific countries (Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste).
Building on the previous TA, the proposed TA seeks to assist other Pacific countries to analyze gender situations across key social and economic areas by developing summary gender profiles. The profiles will be more succinct than the gender assessments, but still highlight country gender priorities and data. Initially four profiles will be prepared for countries where there is country demand and the greatest potential for these to inform the investment pipeline. Kiribati, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu have been tentatively identified. The impact will be the development of gender-responsive government programs and policies. The outcome will be strengthened institutional and technical capacity for gender mainstreaming in participating DMCs.

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
