Project Description

According to ADB website, the proposed knowledge and support Technical Assistance (TA) will support Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan increase intermittent renewable energy generation (solar and wind power generation) by providing training to transmission grid operators on modernized control techniques to address renewable energy intermittency and by analyzing regional cooperation arrangement options.

The TA was agreed by the countries at the Energy Sector Coordinating Committee (ESCC) meeting under the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) to address the challenges of securely and cost-effectively integrating renewable energy into the grid. The TA is aligned with the ESCC’s work plan, but is not included in the current country or regional cooperation operations business plans.

According to ADB documents, the project has risk category of low and safeguard categorization is not applicable.

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
