Project Description

According to the bank document, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will involve research and development, policy advice, and capacity development on issues facing ADB's developing member countries (DMCs) in line with the priorities set out in Strategy 2030 (S2030).

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
