According to the ADB, the technical assistance seeks to strengthen institutional capacity, identify and create investment proposals for priority sites and develop a financing mechanism to support the East Asian-Australasian Flyway in the long-term.
The TA will establish a framework to identify sites of highest priority within the EAAF. The TA will engage with participating developing member countries to strengthen protection and sustainable use of these sites. A subsequent investment framework will be completed where investment proposals are developed for each site maximizing biodiversity gains as well as co-benefits and improvements to local livelihoods. The TA will then establish a financing mechanism to generate financial resources particularly from EAAF Partnership members that are Asian Development Bank donor countries, to maintain both priority sites and regional flyway initiatives in the long-term.

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.
