According to the bank's website, "The proposed regional transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will support the developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in South Asia to enhance the integration of gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) in project design and implementation and achieve greater GESI results. It aims to deliver three main outputs: (i) improved quality of GESI mainstreaming at entry, (ii) enhanced implementation, monitoring, and reporting of GESI results, and (iii) strengthened GESI capacities of sectors and partners. The TA facility will support 239 projects (117 projects in the pipeline and 122 projects under implementation) across sectors of the South Asia Department (SARD). To ensure consistency in following through the implementation of this TA facility, the same set of consultants will be contracted to attend to the multiple ensuing and/or ongoing projects. The same implementation arrangement will be adopted to ensure smooth coordination between the consultants and project teams."

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.
