According to ADB website, more than 95% of all coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases, are in urban areas. COVID-19 has exposed the vulnerabilities of developing member country (DMC) cities, which are on the front line of COVID-19 containment efforts. The benefits of urban agglomeration, such as high density, lower mobility costs, and improved regional and international connectivity, that have made DMC cities the engines of economic growth in Asia and the Pacific have left cities exposed to the risks of COVID-19 a major challenge in the fight against the pandemic.

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.
