According to the bank's website, "The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support efforts of the developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to build capacities of their cities for inclusive and gender-responsive investments supported through downstream financing.
The TA will help cities become more livable through the use of innovative and integrated solutions in project design, development, and implementation. Specifically, the TA will support project identification and prioritization, conceptualization, development and conduct of project preparatory studies (PPSs) for cities to develop feasible, gender-responsive, and economically viable investments. The TA will also provide support to cities for downstream financing of PPSs by cities, governments, development partners, commercial banks, the private sector, etc. It will build on the experience of the implementation of Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA) which was established by ADB and the Government of Germany in 2007 with the intent of improving the lives of 1.6 billion people in Asia and the Pacific by working closely with secondary cities in the region to address gaps in infrastructure development and financing."

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
