Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the bank's website, the transaction technical assistance (TA) facility "will provide project preparatory support and capacity building to a series of ensuing projects in the human and social development (HSD) sectors in Southeast Asia with listed in Appendix 1. The initial focus will be on programs and projects included in country operations business plans up to 2023, and on assistance for ongoing project implementation. The TA facility will contribute to the Asian Development Bank (ADB) response to Southeast Asian developing member countries' (DMCs') emerging needs brought about by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The TA facility will support evidence-based policy and technical advice and build capacity of selected ongoing projects which are facing difficulty in implementing the reforms. It will also support analysis and knowledge management on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that will be shared with and among Southeast Asian DMCs and used in preparing programs and projects. While phase 1 of the TA facility supported regular projects in the pre-COVID-19 period, phase 2 will focus on preparing COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 recovery responses. Drawing upon lessons from phase 1, phase 2 will ensure ADB responds with greater flexibility to DMCs' emerging needs for short- and medium-term investment and knowledge in HSD sectors."

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.
