According to the bank's website, "The Coffee and Agroforestry Livelihood Improvement Project is an innovative project to improve the livelihoods of Timor-Leste's coffee farmers. The project will underpin implementation of Timor-Leste's new Coffee Sector Development Plan and pilot a new model for delivering training to 2,000 coffee farming households in the Aileu, Ainaro, Bobonaro, Ermera, Liquica, and Manufahi municipalities. These households will receive training on good agricultural practices for production of coffee and related crops and assistance with access to finance. The project will also strengthen industry management and support initiatives to improve coffee quality and linkages with key markets. The project will support Timor-Leste's post COVID-19 economic recovery by helping to improve rural livelihoods. The project is aligned with the ADB Strategy 2030 operational priorities of addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities, and promoting rural development and food security."

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
