According to the Bank’s website, the proposed Uttarakhand Livability and Resilience Improvement Project (ULRIP) envision making urban areas more livable, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable in Haldwani, and providing safe, efficient, and climate-resilient water supply services in four towns (Champawat, Kichha, Kotdwar, and Tanakpur) in Uttarakhand. In Haldwani, it will promote (i) increased urban mobility by decongesting critical areas with road network improvement, including the introduction of the first in-city environmentally sustainable public transportation system and intelligent traffic management system; (ii) improved drainage to reduce urban floods and improve public health; and (iii) integrated urban facilities, including an administrative building and bus terminus. ULRIP aims to provide universal and equitable access to water supply services, which will complement the Government of Uttarakhand's efforts in responding to national flagship programs, such as the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).

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.
