Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

As stated by the ADB, the proposed regional technical assistance (TA) will assist ADB developing member countries (DMCs) in Asia and the Pacific (APAC) in advancing a just energy transition that supports energy sector decarbonization via a progressive transition from fossil- fuels to clean technologies in an inclusive, affordable, and reliable manner.

The TA will assist targeted DMCs with a holistic range of solutions, including (i) supporting Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETPs) activities; (ii) undertaking country level energy transition assessments; (iii) conduct project level transaction and pre-feasibility studies financed by JETP and ADB Energy Transition Mechanism (ETM); and (iv) develop knowledge sharing and outreach programs.

The proposed TA will work in close coordination with ongoing ADB energy sector operations and other energy transition initiatives, such as the Climate Investment Funds Accelerating Coal Transition (CIF-ACT), among others. JETP has broad support from a range of development partners as a mechanism to address the challenges of the energy transition. Given ADB emerging lead role on JETP in multiple countries, it is envisaged that the proposed TA financing will be subsequently expanded through additional financing from ADB and external sources.

The TA will focus initially on Southeast Asian DMCs, particularly in Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Viet Nam, whereas other Southeast Asian DMCs, may also be supported if demand arises. Other APAC regions will be supported once additional eligible funding resources become available in the future.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

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.
