(iii) contributing towards the technical design of the eco-compensation programs to be implemented;

(iv) identifying policy recommendations on integrating local development into ecological conservation programs (Outputs 1 and 2); and

(v) clarifying the key issues, major tasks, and policy incentives for achieving the dual objectives of ecological improvement and economic development in key ecological function zones.

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
