According to the bank's website, "The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will strengthen the Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS) policy provisions and procedures to enhance its effectiveness and relevance to the changing needs of the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) borrowers and clients, and develop the capacity of developing member countries (DMCs) to uphold safeguards in development projects. It will take into consideration the recommendations of the Independent Evaluation Department's (IED) Corporate Evaluation on the effectiveness of the 2009 SPS in achieving ADB's safeguard objectives. The TA is aligned with the first operational priority of Strategy 2030 on addressing remaining poverty and inequality; and the sixth operational priority on strengthening governance and institutional capacity in relation to upholding safeguards. The TA concept was endorsed during the corporate priority framework meeting in November 2019 and is included in the 2020 management approved results-based work plan of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department (SDCC)."

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.
