According to ADB, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) for Supporting Institutional Knowledge Development and Capacity Building for Planning of Innovative and Sustainable Projects and Programs responds to India's need for knowledge solutions by helping deepen institutional insight and capacity in related partner agencies, including central ministries and state government departments. The TA aims to enhance upstream knowledge support for strategic studies of developmental agendas, and the conceptualization and planning of innovative and sustainable initiatives, projects, and programs in a fiscally prudent manner that also incorporates climate and disaster-resilient elements.
The TA intends to provide knowledge services to meet the operational and thematic priorities of the country partnership strategy, 2018 2022 of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and India. In line with the emphasis of ADB's Strategy 2030 on strengthening ADB's role as provider of operationally relevant knowledge products, the TA will enable ADB to proactively engage with India in the search for holistic solutions to the country's increasingly complex development challenges. It will do so by providing quality policy and strategic advice while helping strengthen India's institutional knowledge and capacity for managing those issues across multiple sectors.
According to an access to information request filed by the EWS team with ADB, it was disclosed that this project seeks to provide assistance to various States in India on Energy transition, solar city planning, International Distribution Energy System and Renewable energy.

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.
