According to the bank document, the TA will address key and immediate challenges to maximize the gender dimension in operations in East Asia. It will have an operational focus directed at enhancing the identification of gender interventions in new projects particularly those in less traditional sectors for gender mainstreaming, and in thematic areas with fewer precedents and where innovative approaches to gender mainstreaming need to be pursued.
This will be achieved through the provision of specialized expertise to selected operations for in-depth due diligence (gender assessment and integration), and development of toolkits in key thematic areas, to enhance the capacity of executing and implementing agencies for gender mainstreaming and social inclusion in the medium term.
The TA will finance the rollout of a gender monitoring system and the associated training for executing agencies and implementing agencies. The system will facilitate the tracking of gender actions and data aggregation for an overview of EARD's contributions to address specific gender gaps in the region. The TA will support the capture of tacit knowledge from operations with relevance to future preparation of projects in priority thematic 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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
