According to the bank website, "the proposed Alaoa Multi-Purpose Dam Project (AMDP) (the Project) will develop a multi-purpose dam coupled with a run-of-river type of small hydropower plant (SHP), with an indicative capacity of 0.26 megawatts (MW) in the upstream areas of the eastern branch of the Vaisigano river in Apia, Samoa. The Project will help Samoa (i) attenuate Vaisigano River floods; (ii) increase the resiliency of the Apia water supply; and (iii) increase Samoa's renewable energy production capacity. The Project also includes capacity building and project management supports. The project feasibility assessment is currently being undertaken under the regional transaction technical assistance."

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
