The technical assistance (TA) will support the government's forest policies, particularly the Ministry of Environment, Green Development, and Tourism (MEGDT) Forest Conservation Program, and strengthen government initiatives to develop FGRs assessment, characterization and monitoring systems. It will support one of six National Development Strategy priorities: contain the depletion of animal and plant life, and create conditions for their natural recreation and sustainable use. It will also take measures to (i) study the dispersal and reserves of rare and extremely rare plant species, (ii) create and protect their gene pool, (iii) establish a system of registration, information and monitoring, (iv) elaborate a plan for their proper use, and (v) provide for restoration and cultivation of rare plants.

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
