According to the bank's website, "The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will improve public sector management (PSM) practices in seven Pacific developing member countries through (i) institutional strengthening of ministries of finance, other central management agencies, and relevant sector ministries; and (ii) supporting tailored policy advice and targeted analysis to promote longer-term fiscal sustainability for improved growth and public service delivery. The seven targeted countries are the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Niue, Samoa, Tonga, and Tuvalu. The TA will also provide policy advice as requested to support the targeted countries during disasters caused by natural hazards, such as cyclones and the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The TA delivers (i) targeted assessments on PSM issues to inform government planning and development partner engagement; (ii) support for capacity development in PSM, with different focus areas depending on the country's need and absorptive capacity; and (iii) policy advice and dialogue to strengthen governance mechanisms and prioritize and implement reforms."

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
