According to the bank document, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) aims to support developing member countries (DMCs) prepare and respond to disasters through an enhanced understanding of disaster displacement. To realize this objective, the TA will
(i) generate knowledge on disaster displacement, focusing on the characteristics, trends, and cost; and
(ii) support selected DMCs to make evidence-based decisions on preparing for, responding to, and managing displacement risks.
A greater understanding of the dynamics of disaster displacement can lead to reduced socioeconomic impacts and limit the longer-term consequences disasters can have on development, particularly for the most vulnerable.

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
