The proposed technical assistance (TA) will build the capacity of Pacific Developing Member Countries (PDMCs) to promote and manage their sustainable economic development. The TA will finance a fellows program for mid-level staff in executing and implementing agencies from PDMCs to support mutual learning and knowledge sharing, and contribute to effective project design and implementation. The fellows will gain professional work experience in ADB operations as well as contribute to ADB operations by applying their skills and insights from a local and/or DMC perspective.
(i) Costs reduced: improving the availability, affordability and reliability of energy, information communication technology, and transport infrastructure.
(ii) Risks managed: greater resilience to external economic and financial shocks, climate change, and natural disasters.

Two international consultants will be recruited for this TA. The positions include a strategic Advisor (international, 3 person-months intermittent) and a Program Manager (national, 26 person-months continuous).

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
