According to ADB, the Government of Manipur has requested ADB assistance through project readiness financing (PRF) to prepare the ensuing Aizawl Sustainable Urban Transport Project. The PRF will support the development of the CMP, identify high-priority urban transport investments for the ensuing project, and enhance its readiness by supporting due diligence and other preparatory activities. The PRF will also conduct detailed assessment of institutional strengthening and capacity development requirements of the UDPAD, and develop this component of the ensuing project.
The ensuing project developed through the PRF will include (i) institutional strengthening for improved urban mobility planning systems through the identification of integrated smart solutions; (ii) support for strategic planning while building on earlier urban transport initiatives, current development plans, robust technical analysis, and state government priorities; (iii) synergy with land use and urban planning; and (iv) inclusion of disaster and climate change resilience and gender inclusiveness in urban mobility interventions. The PRF and the ensuing project are listed in ADB's country operations business plan for India, 2021 2023. It is closely aligned with the following five operational priorities of ADB's Strategy 2030: making cities more livable; addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities; strengthening governance and institutional capacity; accelerating progress in gender equality; and tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience, and enhancing environmental sustainability.

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.
