Project Description

According to ADB website, the proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support Pacific island countries to objectively analyze the costs and benefits of available urban investment options, to plan, design and prioritize investments, assess technical suitability, economic, financial and social viability, capacity and institutional issues, address environmental and social safeguards and, identify measures to strengthen project implementation capacity of urban investment projects. At the same time, the countries need to develop institutional, policy and human resource capacity to effectively plan and manage urban investments, so that social and economic benefits are maximized. ADB continues to receive requests from Pacific DMCs to assist in addressing challenges they face.

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
