Project Description

According to the bank website, "the project will rehabilitate and upgrade about 900 kilometers (km) of state highways and major district roads (MDRs) in Chhattisgarh to improve connectivity, livelihood opportunities, and access to basic services for people in remote areas.

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.
