According to the Bank’s website, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will carry out new research, publish knowledge products, and organize and sponsor events to bring knowledge solutions closer to policymakers of developing member countries (DMCs) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), in line with Strategy 2030's operational priority 6: Strengthening governance and institutional capacity. These activities include engaging researchers from leading national, regional, and international research and academic institutions to undertake cutting-edge studies while ensuring open access to the data and findings. It also entails organizing conferences and sponsoring events organized by other knowledge and academic institutions to facilitate knowledge exchange from frontier research presented during these events, as well as to foster economists' networks within the region. Results of these research projects will be disseminated to DMC authorities and integrated into staff research that will feed into evidence-based policy recommendations addressing recent and traditional development challenges in DMCs.

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.
