According to the bank's website, "The proposed transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will support Government of Bangladesh during 2020-2022 to improve performance of the country's energy sector through technical, policy and capacity development support for investment projects in power and gas sectors. During this period, Asian Development Bank's (ADB) energy portfolio in Bangladesh is expected to increase by $1.7 billion, equivalent to the current ADB portfolio developed during 2015-2020.
The TA facility will combine the preparation of various projects in Bangladesh during 2020-2022. Such an approach is expected to result in a better-performing energy portfolio in Bangladesh than would be achieved through project-specific TA because of improved (i) response time by providing the country with consistent energy solutions; (ii) quality of outputs through efficient delivery systems; (iii) sector assessment and policy support; and (iv) knowledge sharing across sub-sectors."

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
