According to the bank's website, "The proposed RBL program will support the government's efforts to implement high priorities from Ehsaas in a coordinate, cohesive and systematic manner. The RBL modality is appropriate for the proposed program because the government has: (i) a sound social protection and poverty alleviation agenda and a vision for the sector (para. 4); (ii) provided a clearly defined scope for ADB and other development partners; (iii) demonstrated progressive improvements in fiduciary and financial management (FM); (iv) extensive experience and success with the program-for-results financing instrument from the World Bank; and (iv) increased use of country systems in parallel with reforms in procurement and FM. In addition, the nature of the program requires a results and systems approach with the focus on overall results rather than a number of discrete interventions. The RBL modality will facilitate the implementation of works by using country program systems, supporting institutional strengthening, promoting development partner coordination and harmonization, and reducing overall transaction costs."

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.
