According to the ADB website:
The CARES Program will help the government in implementing its pandemic response plan the National Relief Program to respond to public health emergencies and to mitigate adverse economic and social impacts caused by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The program will extend support to the poor and vulnerable to withstand the pandemic's adverse impact on their livelihoods through food assistance and employment support.
The program facilitates the government's mapping of the poor and vulnerable populations for effective food distribution and other relief service delivery. Its support to the government's economic response measures, especially financing MSMEs, will accelerate the recovery of an export-oriented manufacturing as well as tourism sector, for enhanced regional cooperation and integration. The program complements efforts by SAARC and the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation to ensure coordinated responses to mitigate the impact of the pandemic in the region and facilitate the recovery process.

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
