According to the bank document, the proposed project will help develop a sustainable transportation system in Karachi by delivering the city's _red line_ BRT corridor, directly benefiting 1.5 million people. The project will comprise two interlinked outputs: (1) the construction of a 25-kilometer (km) BRT corridor and associated facilities, and (2) effective project management and sustainable BRT operations through institutional developments. The project is economically justified by major time savings for future BRT passengers, vehicle operating cost savings, better air quality and carbon emissions savings, which will improve the health of Karachi's citizens and mitigate climate change. The project will also make Karachi safer, boost private sector investment, and foster gender equity.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
