According to the bank document, "the project will help the Ministry of Agriculture to optimize underutilized agriculture dry land towards modern agriculture, increased farming profitability, and climate change resilience. The project is expected to contribute to COVID-19 recovery by stimulating rural economy and supporting smallholder's entrepreneurship.
The project will address the following key issues:
(i) limited value addition in agriculture;
(ii) limited uptake of modern farming practices and innovations;
(iii) unreliable irrigation and inadequate agricultural services;
(iv) low added value of agriculture produces and limited access to market; and
(v) underutilization of dry land.
The project will promote climate-smart agriculture (CSA) and will explore options to bring high-level technology to stimulate the use of information and communication technology platforms to provide farmers with greater access to information."

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.
