According to the bank document, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will continue ADB''s support to Developing Member Country (DMC) journalists so that they become more likely to cover wider range of economic and social development issues facing Asia and the Pacific region. Capacity building programs are expected to deepen their understanding of increasingly complex nature of economic and social development issues intertwined across sectoral and thematic areas, and for DMC journalists through their published articles to contribute to local policy debates for making informed policy decisions aligned to the SDGs. The TA will deliver
i) a DMC Journalist Program developed and delivered during ADB''s annual meetings; and
(ii) outreach program targeting renowned and influential global, regional, and/or national media for opinion-leaders.
The project outcome aims to improve DMC journalists' coverage of complex social and economic development issues.

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
