According to the bank's website, "The proposed cluster knowledge and support technical assistance (C-KSTA) will support a strategic mix of evaluations over the medium term. IED [Independent Evaluation Department] draws on resources from both its annual administrative budget and knowledge and support technical assistance (KSTA) resources to deliver its work program of evaluations and knowledge work. By combining these resources, IED can plan and deliver timely, relevant, and high-quality evaluations and knowledge activities. This C- KSTA for 2020-2024 follows an earlier cluster TA approved for IED in 2016 to support corporate, thematic, country, and sector evaluations and validations and related knowledge and outreach activities. Like the first one, this proposed cluster TA will support the delivery of a mix of evaluations and validations, including some complementary knowledge and outreach activities.
The C KSTA will be divided into three subprojects. Subproject 1 will support the delivery of evaluations to be mobilized in 2020 and completed through 2022, as set out in the IED Work Program 2021-2022. Subproject 2 is structured along the same lines and will support the delivery of evaluations in 2022 2023, based on the next three-year work program for 2022 2023. Subproject 3 will support the delivery of evaluations in 2023 2024, based on the work program cycle for 2023 2024."

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
