According to the Bank’s website, the Technical Assistance (TA) will support the delivery of Strategy 2030 Operational Priorities 1, 2, 6, and 7 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) by engaging with citizens and civil society organizations (CSOs), with a particular focus on reaching women, youth, the poor, vulnerable, marginalized, and excluded. The TA will support developing member countries (DMCs) to achieve stronger, more effective, and more sustainable development outcomes by providing the knowledge, forums, and tools to directly engage with citizens. It will provide operational support in five DMCs across Asia and the Pacific, working closely to integrate citizen engagement mechanisms into ADB-financed projects. In addition to building knowledge and capacity on citizen engagement, the TA will enhance engagement with CSOs across the region, building upon the recent work of NGO and Civil Society Center (NGOC) in updating the Operations Manual (OM) E4 and CSO Sourcebook.

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.
