According to the bank document, the proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will address key sustainable infrastructure development issues and expand potential investment opportunities on sustainable infrastructure for ADB developing member countries (DMCs).
The proposed TA is aligned with the midterm review of ADB's Finance Sector Operational Plan (FSOP) which affirms ADB's critical role in infrastructure finance and with ADB's commitment to hosting the 2018 Global Infrastructure Forum.
Furthermore, the Sustainable Development Goals and COP21 agreement underline the importance of infrastructure finance, particularly the respective roles of the public and private sectors, as well as multilateral development banks (MDBs) in the development agenda.

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.
