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.
DESCRIPTION A PDA grant for $3 million will support the detailed engineering design for the project and external financial audit of the PDA account. The PDA is not listed in the country operations business plan for 2015_2017 and will follow approval and reporting procedures laid out for PDA financing not listed in the current year's plan. The PDA is proposed to be financed from ADB's Special Funds resources and is the first PDA grant for the project. PROJECT RATIONALE AND LINKAGE TO COUNTRY/REGIONAL STRATEGY The PDA will fund (i) the engineering consultant recruited to prepare the detailed design and advance procurement actions of the project, and (ii) the financial audit firm required for auditing the use of the PDA. The PDA will allow the government to complete the detailed engineering design before the proposed project become effective. Once the ensuing financing becomes effective, the civil works contract will be either almost ready to be awarded or already awarded. The PDA will allow about 2 years of time saving from the grant effectiveness to contractor mobilization during the initial phase of implementation. IMPACT Enhanced regional connectivity and trade via CAREC Corridors 1 and 3 connector road. CONSULTING SERVICES All consulting services to be financed will be recruited following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. PROCUREMENT All goods and works to be financed will be recruited following ADB's Procurement Guidelines.

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.
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:
