Project Description

According to the bank website, "The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) is the third of a series of TA projects from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to help the Government of Afghanistan better deliver sustainable infrastructure development. This TA will build on ADB's TA for Support for Infrastructure Investments and Policy (closed in September 2018) and ADB's current ongoing TA for Second Support for Infrastructure Investments and Policy, which helped the government improve budget and project selection processes. To sustain these improvements, the TA will (i) improve the monitoring of ADB-financed projects in Afghanistan by engaging third party monitoring consulting firms, (ii) enhance the government's infrastructure project performance monitoring system (PPMS), (iii) support project management, and (iv) strengthen institutional and human capacities."

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
