According to bank documents, "the project will improve the safety of inter-island navigation and provide resilient outer island access infrastructure ship-to-shore transfer and land transport for the selected outer islands in Gilbert Islands Chain of Kiribati, namely: Abaiang, Nonouti, Beru, and Tabiteuea South; and will strengthen capacity of the implementing agencies.
Thus the impact of the project is to improve access to economic and social infrastructure to the outer islands and ensuring all people can access the associated opportunities."

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
