According to the Bank’s website, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will provide a regional platform to help developing member countries (DMCs) in Southeast Asia mobilize public and private finance for commitments under the Paris Agreement, including nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and the Sustainable Development Goals. ACT will respond to ADB's elevated ambition to deliver $100 billion in climate finance from 2019 to 2030. It will leverage support from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility (ACGF) financing partners to strengthen upstream planning, project origination, and capacity to accelerate a pipeline of green projects for the region. As an expanded knowledge and support TA, ACT will provide integrated support for knowledge and transaction TA-type activities across several stages of the project cycle: country planning and programming, origination, preparation, and implementation.

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.
