According to the bank, this TA subproject will assess which innovation ecosystem elements need to be strengthened to allow for faster adoption of new technologies in selected sectors and themes in DMCs. This requires a good understanding of the innovation landscape and the emerging issues in the sectors and themes supported by the TA cluster. It also requires proactive knowledge sharing related to existing technology innovations, and their successes and failures complemented and reinforced by an open debate among experts from DMCs, technology providers and development partners. ADB's current and innovative approach to knowledge sharing could reach a broader group of stakeholders, including technology entrepreneurs. This subproject will help the TA cluster to support knowledge engagements with technology providers to advance HLT innovations in DMCs.

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
