According to ADB website, the TA will provide assistance to Pacific DMCs on a demand-driven basis to better plan and prioritize urban investments that promote the development of inclusive, environmentally-sustainable and economically competitive urban centers in line with ADB's Urban Operational Plan 2012 2020. The TA will finance the development and/or updating of urban development strategies in target Pacific DMCs, as the basis for identifying priority urban sector investments. The TA will also leverage support from the Cities Development Initiative of Asia (CDIA) in those Pacific DMCs which already have urban investment plans in place, or National Infrastructure Investment Plans prepared with assistance from the Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility (PRIF). CDIA support will be used to prepare pre-feasibility studies for priority urban investments. The TA will also finance outreach activities in Pacific DMCs to link countries to CDIA. Pre-feasibility studies can then be used to potentially secure follow-on PPTA assistance.
The TA impact will be inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth in Pacific cities and towns. The TA outcome will be that investments to support more sustainable urban development are better planned.

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
