According to ADB website, the TA will assist judiciaries develop seminal jurisprudence responsive to climate change and sustainable development issues as follows by:
1. Exposing them to global and regional developments in this field, especially emerging concepts, principles, and jurisprudence from different jurisdictions and international tribunals, through their participation in national, regional and international conferences
2. Identifying country-specific capacity gaps and addressing them in a manner that institutionalizes trainings and lessons learned, which will then cascade to the lowest-level courts
3. Preparing knowledge products that they can easily refer to while they adjudicate disputes with climate change and sustainable development components.
Further, the impact of this demand-driven TA project will be law and policy reforms and the rule of law strengthened through the effective adjudication of climate change and sustainable development issues.

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
