According to the Bank's website, the technical assistance will provide finances to the new Caucasus, Central Asia, and Mongolia Technical Assistance Center (CCAMTAC) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that will undertake capacity development in macroeconomic-related areas for Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
The CCAMTAC will be physically established in Almaty, Kazakhstan in mid-2021, but its remote capacity building activities will start from 1 January 2021 to respond to needs for macroeconomic policy advice amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
ADB will fully delegate TA implementation to IMF, as the executing agency, who will select consultants, procure goods and services, sign and administer contracts (including payments), manage consultants and prepare the TA completion report.

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.
