Project Description

According to the bank website, "the proposed TA will support more effective communication on ADB's strategy and approach to supporting sustainable and inclusive development in the 14 Pacific DMCs, most of which are characterized by geographic isolation, small populations, narrow economies, capacity constraints, limited resources and exposure to external shocks. It is also in line with Strategy 2030's focus on the development needs of small island developing states (SIDS) and countries with fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCAS). New knowledge products prepared under the TA will provide government counterparts, co-financiers, NGOs and other partners with a deeper understanding of the key lessons from ADB's work in the Pacific and facilitate increased cooperation between ADB and its partners."

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
