According to bank documents, the proposed transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will provide project preparatory assistance, technical support, policy advice, knowledge sharing, and capacity building, and subsequently, strengthen due diligence and improve project readiness to Southeast Asian developing member countries (DMCs) for a series of lending projects and programs identified in the country operations business plans, 2018-2020. The TA will initially support (i) Support for a Sustainable Power Sector (Cambodia), (ii) Accelerating Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expansion (Viet Nam), (iii) Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Activity in the Natural Gas Processing Sector (Indonesia); (iv) Geothermal Sector Project (Indonesia), (v) Power Network Development Program II (Myanmar), (vi) GMS Cross-Border Power Trade and Distribution Project (Lao PDR); and (vii) Sustainable Rural Power Supply Project (Philippines). These energy sector projects require similar preparation, due diligence, design and readiness activities. The transaction TA facility will encompass individual TAs listed in the Southeast Asia region's Country Operations Business Plans (COBP) 2018-2020.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

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
