The proposed investment program will finance investments in Electricidade de Timor-Leste (EDTL), Timor-Leste's state-run electric utility) to improve electricity service reliability, expand access to modern energy services, and improve performance of EDTL's management, maintenance, and revenue-collection systems throughout Timor-Leste. Achievement of these objectives will substantially reduce the fiscal drain of the power sector on Timor-Leste's budget. Investments will be financed consistent with a sector development strategy and investment roadmap, to be prepared as a key output of project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA).

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
