According to the bank website, this knowledge and support technical assistance (KSTA) has been conceptualized with the objective of enhancing the statistical capacity of the National Statistical Systems (NSS) of selected developing member economies (DMEs) in Asia and the Pacific using technological tools. As the second phase of a new series of enhanced statistical capacity building projects managed by the Development Economics and Indicators Division (ERDI) of the Economic Research and Regional Cooperation Department (ERCD) , the TA directly supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through technological innovations and capacity building across five domains: (i) the development of a customizable software to digitize sampling frames for administrative and survey data, (ii) enhanced compilation of national accounts and improved statistical infrastructure, (iii) quality labor statistics using modern standards and methods, (iv) data dissemination, and (v) knowledge sharing on technological innovations in statistics.
The proposed project is part of the approved 2018 Work Plan of the ERCD and is linked to the Global Action Plan for Sustainable Development Data through SDG target 17.19.

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
