According to the bank document, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the efficient and timely sharing of knowledge solutions for development challenges among member countries of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Knowledge solutions will be sourced from ADB’s technical knowledge, from ADB member countries’ own experiences, and from the application of high-level technologies. Knowledge solutions will be shared using a “digital first” approach that makes it easy to prepare, find, and use short-form knowledge content. Real-time communication across ADB and member countries will be supported by online expert communities. TA implementation will also focus on building the skills of developing member country (DMC) counterparts to capture and share their experiences and insights through Development Asia.
The proposed TA has three outputs: (i) enriching the Development Asia website by substantially expanding its content; (ii) encouraging more active and practical approaches to knowledge exchange among ADB (including Sector and Thematic Groups or STGs), DMCs, and development partners; and (iii) building the capacity of DMC officials to use a common platform to share their knowledge with ADB and their peers.

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.
