According to the ADB website:
The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will contribute to research identifying the major pathways and drivers for the use of digital technologies to facilitate rapid, inclusive, and green agricultural and rural transformation in the People's Republic of China (PRC), which could lead to recommendations, based on scientific evidence, regarding innovative institutions, policies, and investments. The TA will also (i) examine factors that enable and constrain the use of digital technologies to facilitate green and resilient agricultural and rural transformation; and (ii) propose appropriate models that could be scaled up and transferred to other areas and the regions in the PRC with the corresponding institutions and incentive mechanisms in the near future, in order to promote green, low-carbon agricultural and rural development and enhance climate change adaptation capacity in the PRC. The TA will further enhance the capacity of the government, the private sector, farmers, and other stakeholders in developing member countries (DMC) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to recognize, adopt, and transform digital technologies to facilitate agricultural and rural transformation via ADB knowledge sharing and developing country cooperation platforms such as the ADB-PRC Regional Knowledge Sharing Initiative.
The TA will be implemented under ADB's country partnership strategy, 20212025 for the PRC;_and aligned with key operational priorities of Strategy 2030, especially in the area of promoting digital development and innovative technologies._The TA will also promote private sector solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation, including climate-smart agriculture, and tackling inequality of income and opportunity through policy actions to reduce interregional and ruralurban environmental, social, and economic disparities.

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.
