As stated by the ADB, the project will provide long-term sustainable solutions to increase year-round access to irrigation water in about 22,400 hectares (ha) of two districts of Madhesh Province in the Terai by constructing a large-scale network of about 500 tube wells with dedicated electricity distribution networks. The management, operation, and maintenance of the tube well irrigation schemes will be contracted to a third-party operator, using a design-build-operate contracting modality. On-demand irrigation services will be provided to about 22,000 farm households using a prepaid irrigation system.

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.
