According to the Bank’s website, the regional knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will enable the economies of Caucasus and Central Asia (CCA) to assess the demand for new forms and directions of regional cooperation in light of the implications of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and conflicts in the region by (i) systematically collecting additional information on the related socioeconomic developments, (ii) analyzing regional trade flows, and (iii) reviewing alternative transit options. All three TA outputs will include policy recommendations for the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the CCA governments, as well as the production of policy briefs and other publications or reports that will be accessible online.

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.
