According to the bank document, the proposed small-scale knowledge and support TA will design and implement a graduate research fellowship program covering Pacific development issues, including the administration of the application and selection process to award the graduate research fellowships, supervision and support for the graduate fellows' research activities, and dissemination of the research outputs through knowledge-sharing activities including policy-relevant publications.
The TA will finance at least three (3) awards of a graduate research fellowship for graduate thesis or dissertation research on a priority Pacific development issue or subject. The research topics will be informed by consultations with senior officials of PDMCs. The project outcome is expected to increase the understanding and raise the awareness of development challenges of the Pacific Region.

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
