According to the bank's website, "The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support participating developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to promote the life cycle management of fluorocarbons. The life cycle management of fluorocarbons requires (i) development, manufacture, and use of climate-friendly refrigerants with zero or low global warming potential (GWP) as an alternative to fluorocarbons including replacement of old cooling equipment (upstream), and (ii) recovering, recycling, and destructing the discarded fluorocarbons (midstream and downstream). The replacement of old equipment with new technologies also enables energy efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy sources."

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.
