According to ADB website, the Government of Mongolia has requested financial assistance from the Asian Development Bank in the form of a policy-based loan to address Ulaanbaatar''s severe air pollution problem which (i) harms citizens' health, disproportionally affecting children and poor people; and (ii) results in significant health and economic costs, which are a long-term burden on the already weak national economy. The proposed program is grounded in the 2017- 2025 National Program for Reducing Air and Environmental Pollution.

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
