According to the bank website, "The proposed program will support policy actions in disaster risk management (DRM) and provide a source of contingent financing for timely disaster response and early recovery activities. The program is the second phase of the Disaster Resilience Program approved in December 2016 for Cook Islands to help manage the fiscal risk arising from disasters triggered by all types of natural hazards."

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
