Project Description

The TA will support the integration of a differentiated approach to ADB's operations in the urban sector across the Pacific region. The TA will focus on strengthening the resilience of urban areas in Pacific SIDS and FCAS by addressing the root causes of their vulnerability and fragility, including low institutional capacities for planning and managing urban development. The TA will help SIDS and FCAS adopt a longer-term horizon for planning, and support governments to prepare a more programmatic and multi-sector approach to urban infrastructure investments in 3-4 countries. Particular attention will be given to institutional strengthening and capacity development with emphasis on learning by doing.

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.
