Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the bank document, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will build on the findings, recommendations, and lessons learned from TA 9111: Strengthening Developing Member Countries' (DMCs) Capacity in Elderly Care, approved in May 2016 and expected to be completed in May 2020. TA 9111 aimed to develop DMC capacity to adapt to aging populations and develop long-term care (LTC) systems and services.

The country diagnostic studies conducted under the TA in six countries such as Indonesia, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tonga, and Viet Nam. In each country, developing community-based services has emerged as a priority. This TA will:

(i) continue to build the knowledge base on LTC;

(ii) develop innovative and sustainable community-based LTC service models that can operate in low income settings, deliver quality and affordable services, are sustainable and have potential for replication and;

(iii) strengthen knowledge sharing and networking on LTC in the region.

The TA seeks to create new partnerships for service delivery and to address the multiple care needs of older persons in Indonesia, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, and Viet Nam.

The TA is included in the management-approved 2019 results-based work plan of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department. It is aligned with the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Strategy 2030, particularly operational priority one's agenda of addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities among the region's most vulnerable populations. The proposed community-based care models will support the development of technical assistance and lending portfolios on adapting to aging.

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.
