According to the bank website, "the proposed knowledge and technical assistance (TA) will support ADB's mandate to promote regional cooperation and integration (RCI) by maintaining and improving the ADB Asia-Pacific Regional Cooperation and integration Index (ARCII). The TA also aims to utilize ARCII to provide evidence-based, in-depth analysis of the impact of RCI for sustainable development, and promote its use by ADB developing member countries (DMCs) and at ADB for RCI-related policy and investment planning."

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
