Project Description

The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the operational departments expand investment opportunities to developing member countries (DMCs) in finance sector development, inclusive finance, and infrastructure finance through demonstrating new solutions with financial innovation, including in new and emerging areas (such as digital, green, disaster risk, Islamic, municipal, and agri-finance) that can be piloted, scaled and replicated.

It will enable knowledge sharing in emerging finance areas with cross-sector impact for sustainable finance sector development in DMCs, and enable them to strengthen finance sector resilience. The TA will support current and future DMC initiatives related to finance sector development, inclusive finance, and infrastructure finance. The selection of participating DMCs in the TA will be done in consultation with ADB operations departments and confirmed following government clearance and TA approval.

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
