According to the bank website, the proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support ADB's knowledge contribution towards the World Trade Organization (WTO)-led Aid for Trade (AfT) initiative, including participation at the Global Review of AfT, which is hosted every two years by the WTO, and brings together stakeholders to advance the AfT agenda in a coordinated and effective manner. ADB's main contribution consists of a research report, Aid for Trade in Asia and the Pacific, launched at the Global Review. The report provides updates on trends and patterns of trade costs and AfT in Asia and the Pacific, in addition to in-depth analyses on topical issues relating to the inclusiveness and sustainability of trade growth, in the context of a biennial Work Program approved and circulated by WTO's Committee for Trade and Development (CTD) to guide the overall focus of each Global Review.

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
