The proposed project will focus on Yerevan city, Ararat, Armavir, and the mountainous Aragatsotn region. These regions have a combined population of 1.8 million (50% of the country s population) and cover an area of more than 5,400 square kilometers. The main reasons for focusing on this geographical area, especially Yerevan and the Ararat, are their economic importance, vulnerability to over abstraction of ground water, drought, climate change, and absence of intersectoral river basin management plans.
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.
