According to the bank website, the program will leverage complex and critical reforms (costing significant political capital), which provide a range of benefits including a reduced fiscal deficit, improved debt position, and efficiencies in public service provision. The proposed program is fully integrated with the government-led joint policy reform dialogue, and is aligned with a World Bank development policy operation also planned for Board approval in February 2018. The program incorporates past lessons and good practice, including the need to (i) build strong political consensus, (ii) limit reform to a few major actions, (iii) institutionalize a joint government development partner coordination mechanism, and (iv) adopt a medium-term perspective recognizing that deep institutional and structural change requires time to take root.

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
