According to the bank website, the transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will support the effective and efficient implementation of projects funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in Vanuatu. A number of projects are facing implementation problems and delays because of the constrained project management capacity of the executing and implementing agencies and the government''s Vanuatu Project Management Unit (VPMU). To minimize the reoccurrence of similar problems in future operations, the TA will also support the strengthening of institutional and policy frameworks for sound and sustainable project management in Vanuatu.

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
