According to the project document, the TA subproject will support the production of the ADO 2019, one of ADB's flagship publications. It will support the following activities:
(i) preparing background analytical papers following the 2-year rolling research plan,
(ii) further developing and refining analytical methods,
(iii) drafting of ADO content,
(iv) editing economic content and manuscripts,
(v) preparing and laying out of materials for publication, and
(vi) disseminating key results and policy messages.
The TA was submitted in October 2017 to the Strategy, Policy and Review Department as part of the priority TA program of the Economic Research and Regional Cooperation Department (ERCD) and was endorsed as a corporate priority TA in December 2017.
The project outcome is that the ADO content helps inform policy discussions by DME officials, views of the general public, and analysis of researchers.

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.
