According to the bank's website, "The project will support the Government of Maldives to strengthen gender-responsive processes, practices, and services (particularly for children, elderly, and victims-survivors of GBV) at central and decentralized levels. It is aligned with the following impact: gender-based violence minimized and gender barriers preventing equal rights, participation, and benefits for women in social and economic spheres eliminated. The outcome of the project is improved quality support services for women and vulnerable groups, particularly abused women, children, and the elderly."

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.
