Project Description

According to the bank document, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support governments of Asian Development Bank's (ADB) developing member countries (DMCs) to promote evidence-based policy design on small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) development through:

(i) provision of a country and regional index prepared by using a multivariate analytical approach which will be accessed by the DMCs: and

(ii) provision of a comparative country data platform which will cover financial and nonfinancial aspects of SME development in DMCs and will be updated periodically.

The proposed TA will also help ADB operations formulate new ideas for SME projects with the use of innovative approaches through pilot project proposals that will be discussed in an ADB planned annual issuance called the Asia Small and Medium Enterprise Monitor (ASM).

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
