According to the bank website, the objective of the project is to support flood control and improve the living environment. The project is a continuation of the Bank-funded Gourou Integrated Watershed Management Project which was closed in December 2017 and has helped to better regulate rainwater drainage in Abidjan, among other things. PAACA is an integrated operation targeting key social sectors (street food sales, health, gender, etc.) as well as sanitation. The project will be implemented over a five-year period. Its total cost is estimated at EUR 62.51 million. The Bank's contribution, through an AfDB loan, stands at EUR 48.33 million, net of taxes and customs duties.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or email@example.com.
