This project finances the construction of a 500-kV/220-kV substation at Dashte Alwan to connect a 500-kV transmission line, that will go across the Hindukush mountains through the Salang Pass route. This project will add 1,000MW to the 300-MW transmission capacity between North and South Afghanistan that will allow indigenous generations to supply Afghanistan's domestic needs.

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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
