According to the bank's website, "The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to improve energy efficiency, mitigate the risks of virus transmission, and ensure safe working conditions in public buildings by deploying efficient, clean, and smart centralized air conditioning (CAC) systems.
The TA will support the implementation of ADB's Strategy 2030, particularly operational plan for priority 1: addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities, with emphasis on addressing human development and better health for all; operational plan for priority 3: tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability; and operational plan for priority 4: making cities more livable. This TA also seeks to help DMCs respond to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and similar health risks. It is included in the 2020 management-approved results-based work plan of the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department."

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
