According to ADB, the proposed investment is to support Government of Bangladesh to strengthen the climate resilience of 22 vulnerable coastal towns, thereby enhancing their ability to anticipate, absorb, accommodate, and recover from the effects of climate shocks and stresses. The proposed project will support selected coastal towns in pursuing sustainable development and enhancing the quality of life of all residents. It will also help in strengthening rural resilience, as these small towns often act as service centers for surrounding rural areas.

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.
