According to the bank document, "the project will focus on river basins that are mostly located within two provinces: North Western Province and Uva Province. These river basins straddle the dry and intermediate climatic zones and have large numbers of smallholder farmers cultivating under village irrigation systems and rainfed conditions. They are identified as areas (i) vulnerable to climate change; (ii) requiring interventions in irrigation and water resources management to develop resilience to climate change; and (iii) not currently covered by ongoing or planned interventions."

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
