Output 1: participatory subproject development improved will (i) establish 150 new WMCAs; (ii) support institutional and WMCA skills development for efficient use of water management infrastructure inclusive of gender, social, climate and disaster resilience aspects; and (iii) support WMCAs with income-generating activities other than agriculture.
Output 2: small-scale water resources infrastructure with climate and disaster resilient features developed or enhanced will (i) develop 150 new climate- and disaster-resilient subprojects; and (ii) enhance about 400 existing WMCAs' infrastructure with climate and disaster resilient features to improve system performance through adaptive climate proofing and climate-smart low-cost investments and promoting adaptation and disaster resilience.
Output 3: Upazila- and WMCA-level value chain development activities prepared and implemented will increase the income of WMCAs by (i) building WMCAs' capacities to develop and implement business plans promoting climate resilient and market-driven crop diversification; and (ii) investing in the implementation of plans whose activities are linked to build and operationalize post-harvest management infrastructure such as processing and storage facilities, pack houses, and cold chains at Upazila- and WMCA-levels, and with food safety enhancement."

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
